Frequently asked questions about the CADFEM seminars

Below you will find relevant information and assistance that is frequently requested. Do you have any further questions, suggestions or requests? Then feel free to contact us.

Can single seminar days also be booked?

CADFEM training courses are designed to enable every participant to achieve the learning objective. To do so, we put together the appropriate number of 90-minute learning units. If multiple employees in your company already have relevant prior knowledge at a comparable level or you wish to combine specific contents, a customized course is the right choice for you.

Can your seminars also be booked as eLearning units?

CADFEM offers selected seminars as a learning on demand option with identical content; other topics can only be booked as online courses. In all courses, you decide for yourself when, where and at what intervals you continue your Ansys education. The new eLearning option was developed by CADFEM in collaboration with the ZEIT Akademie. You benefit from the proven seminar expertise of the CADFEM team and our instructors in the field of Ansys. All further education formats are coordinated to ensure that you can combine seminars and eLearning courses in ideal fashion.

What is the difference between a seminar and a master’s-level course?

Simulation is more than software. In an academic professional development program with CADFEM's university partners, you can get a glimpse behind the program interface. You learn the calculation algorithms, use analytical methods to simplify models and validate results, and understand the influence of all kinds of software parameters. The expertise you acquire will enable you to produce fast and reliable findings that answer key product improvement questions. To ensure your specialist or managerial career develops in the direction you want it to, we recommend a combination of both types of further education.

Do you offer special conditions for university employees and students?

For CADFEM, the collaboration between practice and science has always been a central aspect in developing upcoming generations of engineers. That’s why we offer discounted enrollment options whenever possible. You can find our current pricing conditions in the seminar descriptions. By the way, have you heard about the special consulting and training options for universities and students?
