Description

Description

Computer-aided-engineering (CAE) software tools are essential components of the modern design process, improving productivity and complex problem-solving. Helping students learn what tools are available to them early in their academic careers can inspire passion for engineering, resulting in a larger group of creative and relevant graduates entering the workforce. In this class, we will discuss how modern students learn and why it is essential to move beyond the textbook to bridge the gap between theoretical and practical application. Discover how mobile apps enable students to perform simulation and engineering calculations right from their Apple® iPads®, with Autodesk® ForceEffect™ for static systems analysis and the Autodesk® ForceEffect™ Motion for mechanical systems. Learn how easy it is to use these apps and integrate them into your classroom to capture student interest and attention, while linking them to the basic concepts presented in traditional textbooks.
