Electronic Design Engineering Simulation Software to Help Develop Workforce to Meet Industry Needs.
SOUTHPOINTE, Pa. - ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANSS), a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today announced that the Universitas Indonesia (UI) has chosen to deploy Ansoft™ software from ANSYS within its Depok Campus (West Java), Indonesia. UI is one of the top universities in Indonesia focusing on engineering teaching and research. The Department of Electrical Engineering, UI will use Ansoft academic products from ANSYS for teaching programs and research activities in the telecommunications field. The selected software consists of a high-value technology bundle that features HFSS™ technology, enabling students to address high-frequency (HF), radio frequency (RF) and signal integrity (SI) problems.
“UI is committed to becoming a world-class teaching and research institution, as stated in its vision and mission statement. Deploying Ansoft academic products from ANSYS allows our students to be trained on a cutting-edge commercial electromagnetic simulation tool set along with the underlying numerical methods and physics, making them globally competitive and ready for industry,” said Professor Eko Tjipto Rahardjo, leader of the Antenna Microwave and Propagation Research Group (AMRG), Department of Electrical Engineering, Universitas Indonesia. “Using HFSS technology — which is the gold standard for high-frequency electromagnetics in the electronics industry — along with its linkages to mechanical and fluid dynamics solutions from ANSYS will enhance our research capabilities for better collaboration between UI and other world-renowned universities and industry.”
UI's Department of Electrical Engineering offers courses on antenna propagation and microwave circuits in the sixth and seventh semesters, respectively. By using HFSS to learn computational techniques in electromagnetics as well as commercial software packages widely used for high-frequency electronic design, students will have a better understanding of 3-D finite element analysis, adaptive and automatic meshing techniques, and accuracy and convergence in the simulation of 3-D structures such as antennas, circulators, couplers and connectors. The engineering simulation tools offer a real-life approach to design tradeoffs.
“A well-trained and industry-ready work force is one of the key obstacles that customers in Indonesia and other ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) countries face when deploying engineering simulation to become globally competitive,” said Dr. Zol Cendes, chief technology officer and general manager at Ansoft. “UI is one of Indonesia's leading teaching and research universities with an eye toward the future: It recognizes that academic products from ANSYS provide unmatched value and commercial-grade technology. Our relationship with UI will help ensure that there is an ANSYS® trained workforce available to the country’s domestic customers and multinational corporations in the aerospace, automotive, industrial machinery and electronics industries.”
ANSYS offers a highly scalable range of engineering simulation software — including electronic design, mechatronic, structural mechanics, fluid dynamics, explicit dynamics and electromagnetics — for academic teaching and research applications around the globe.
