University establishes simulation competence centre

Share this on social media:

The St Petersburg State Marine Technical University (SPbSMTU) has formed a strategic relationship with MSC Software. Under this agreement SPbSMTU and MSC Software will build a competence centre within the Institute of Information Technologies at the university. The centre aims to ensure that future engineers for the Russian shipbuilding industry will be experienced in modern simulation technology and able to find methods of resolution during complex engineering jobs in the computer-aided design and simulation process. Engineers will gain these new skills using the advanced engineering simulation technology from MSC Software for finite element analysis and multi-body dynamics including MSC Nastran, Marc and Adams.

‘Through this agreement we set a milestone for a new generation of engineers in the shipbuilding industry of Russia. We are delighted to be part of this project which transforms engineers to new heights in using engineering simulation so they can bring innovative techniques and experiences to their future employers,’ said Dominic Gallello, CEO and president at MSC Software. ‘They will be trained to work more efficiently with modern simulation software, and to accurately apply the latest methods of computer-aided engineering in their industry.’
