POSTER AWARD

Nurturing a culture of engineering simulation starts in universities with university students

Engineering simulation has the potential to provide a measured and virtually tested path to digital transformation. Nurturing a culture of engineering simulation starts in universities with university students.

The Poster Awards, which recognize and reward the creative use of CAE technology around the world, are intended to bridge the gap between the academic and industrial worlds by providing a forum to connect innovative new young thinkers in engineering with industrial enterprises that have an ever-increasing need for these skills.

Participation is free and is open to students, graduates, researchers and faculty members from universities and research centers.
