The best thing we can do for today’s college students is to prepare them for the real-world challenges they will face upon graduation. For engineering students, ANSYS has long been involved in this process through internships, co-op education opportunities, and promoting the use of our software solutions as learning tools in undergraduate and graduate courses at universities around the world. Today we are excited to be taking another big step along this path by announcing a very special partnership with Carnegie Mellon University and its College of Engineering. Continue reading

USS Enterprise-related stories started hitting the wires last week. It seems like every few years, some enterprising engineer figures out how to develop a gadget originally conceived on Star Trek. First, it was the flip phone. Trekkers remarked at how closely the design resembled the famous communicators used by Capt. Kirk and Mr. Spock. Next came the medical tricorder, used by Dr. McCoy. (Fans even demanded that NASA rename the original space shuttle after the USS Enterprise.)
BTE Dan Hatches Plan
While fans debate the next innovation from the prophetic series that would be seen in the real world – Would it be the phaser? The transporter? Warp drive? – one visionary has his sights set even higher. This mysterious systems and electrical engineer known only as BTE Dan believes it is possible to build the Holy Grail itself – the USS Enterprise. According to his website, this Gen1 Enterprise could be built using today’s technology in only 20 years. The cost? A trifling $1 trillion. Continue reading
