The academic programs within the College of Engineering use a variety of software packages from Ansys, including Ansys Mechanical for finite-element analysis, HFSS for electromagnetic simulation, and Fluent for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis. The packages used by specific academic courses are available in the physical and virtual computer labs for those majors.

Installing on Personal Computers

Ansys software is available for students to install on personal computers via the Ansys Student Software Downloads site.

Sponsorship of Student Teams

Ansys also has a sponsorship program for student design teams to obtain licenses for Ansys software that would be useful for the team's project. Upon request, CTS is able to host floating network licenses for groups to access.
