CST STUDIO SUITE Student Edition 2017 now available

Computer Simulation Technology (CST), part of SIMULIA, a Dassault Systèmes brand, announces the release of CST STUDIO SUITE Student Edition 2017 at MTT-S IMS, booth #1332.

This free version of the market leading electromagnetic simulation tool is developed as part of the CST educational program to support learning, teaching and research at academic institutions. CST STUDIO SUITE Student Edition contains the versatile high-frequency time domain and frequency domain solvers as well as the static and thermal solvers.

It is supported by a set of online examples showing how classic textbook problems can be solved with simulation. The software can be incorporated into the coursework for a class, and the online examples mean that it can also be used by individual students for independent extracurricular learning at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Version 2017 of the Student Edition includes technology improvements from the full CST STUDIO SUITE 2017 release earlier in the year.

‘In 2017 alone, CST STUDIO SUITE Student Edition has helped over eight thousand students around the world to study Maxwell’s equations and experiment with their applications and we hope to extend its reach even further in the future,’ said Dr Martin Timm, Director of Global Marketing, CST. ‘As part of our Academic Program, the CST STUDIO SUITE Student Edition helps prepare students for future careers in industry and research.’

Building a Smart Laboratory 2018 highlights the importance of adopting smart laboratory technology, as well as pointing out the challenges and pitfalls of the process


Informatics experts share their experiences on the implementing new technologies and manging change in the modern laboratory


This chapter will consider the different classes of instruments and computerised instrument systems to be found in laboratories and the role they play in computerised experiments and sample processing – and the steady progress towards all-electronic laboratories.


This chapter considers how the smart laboratory contributes to the requirements of a knowledge eco-system, and the practical consequences of joined-up science. Knowledge management describes the processes that bring people and information together to address the acquisition, processing, storage, use, and re-use of knowledge to develop understanding and to create value


This chapter takes the theme of knowledge management beyond document handling into the analysis and mining of data. Technology by itself is not enough – laboratory staff need to understand the output from the data analysis tools – and so data analytics must be considered holistically, starting with the design of the experiment
