Ansys Academic - Free Student License

Engineering simulation is playing a growing role in science and engineering at the university level. Undergraduate students use it to learn physics principles and gain hands-on, real-world experience that can lead to a deeper understanding of engineering concepts. Postgraduate researchers apply simulation tools to solve complex engineering problems and produce data for their master’s thesis or doctoral dissertation.
