Leveraging Cutting-Edge Technology for the Workforce of Tomorrow

It can be valuable for students to learn to use tools and technologies like Altair’s while in school, as that facilitates a virtuous circle: students can get the premier jobs they are seeking; faculty course instructors can complement theory and first principles with software tools for engineering simulation, data science, and AI that bring principles to life (and are widely used in industry); and companies can more readily find and hire the new talent they’re seeking to help drive innovation. Come join us in this track as we focus on the shared goal of helping students be real-world-ready!
