Bangalore – ANSYS Software Private Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of ANSYS Inc, today announced the launch of its competitive sponsorship based projects for engineering students across India. The primary objective of this innovative programme is to develop technology and engineering skills, improve employability in the industry as well as benefit ANSYS to enhance its collaboration with students. Gautam Dutta, Country Manager of ANSYS India said “This unique initiative, strongly focused on developing the scientists, technologists and engineers of the future, is the first of it’s kind by ANSYS globally. We want to provide students in India with a platform to understand and experience the product development process. ANSYS India team has designed what I believe are challenging problems that students can collaboratively work on”.

Students can choose any of the twelve (12) projects as their main semester/quarter project listed from the approved list. The timeline for submission will be approximately three months from the date of final agreement. The individual student should take up this project independently or in a group of 2-3 and may involve his/her professors, if the student thinks so.

Dr. Kaustubh Nande, Manager- Marketing said, “These projects provide students with an opportunity to demonstrate their experience and success in a tangible form that employers will appreciate. The students have a real opportunity to display their understanding of physics and software skills to a prospective employer as they take on and work through challenging engineering problems.”

All selected projects will carry a variable sponsorship amount between INR 25, 000 - 50, 000 post application review by ANSYS technical experts. On successful completion of the project, winners will be awarded a certificate from ANSYS and will be given an opportunity to present their work at the ANSYS Annual Users Conference or a suitable avenue. In addition, the work could be eligible to be published in ANSYS Advantage magazine or other suitable outlets.

Dr. Murali Kadiramangalam, Director of ANSYS Academic Program said, “Rapid adoption of CAE by industry is creating a CAE manpower shortage worldwide.
