Implementing Advanced CAE Tools in Automotive Engineering Education at Chalmers University of Technology
Paper in proceedings, 2009

Introducing modern CAE software in the classical engineering education is a delicate task. It is always a balance of making sure the student understand the underlying physics and working method of the software as well as giving them the skills so operate it. In this paper it is described how modern Computational Fluid Dynamics software was successfully introduced into the engineering education at Chalmers University of Technology. In the paper the outcome of some of the simulations performed in the course as well as the outcome of two case studies is presented. The outcome of introducing modern CFD software in the education is an increased job market value for the students and several of the course participants have gone straight into CFD related positions in industry.
