Deployment of HyperWorks for Undergraduate Teaching

Abstract

Positive destinations of leavers is a key metric for any university and may include destinations such as relevant further studies, academic, research or industrial positions. A major aspect in successfully ensuring positive destinations is to develop industry ready graduates, possessing a well-proportioned balance between hands-on simulation/software experience, practical skills and a robust theoretical foundation.
As the saying goes: “you can lead a horse to water, but you cannot force it to drink”; inspiration, passion, continuation and consistency are key metrics in motivating most students to perform at their utmost. Based on personal experiences of teaching Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and optimisation techniques to mechanical, automotive and aerospace engineering students, this presentation will discuss some of these metrics in greater detail, including:
• The importance of collaboration between academia, industry and software suppliers.
• Strategies for software implementation into undergraduate teaching.
• Examples of success and perhaps some of lesser successful implementation.
• The changing landscape of student expectations and previous experience.
• Continuation into taught and research post-graduate studies.
