ANSYS (NASDAQ: ANSS) and the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay) will fund research projects that fuel groundbreaking innovations across industries. With IIT Bombay, a worldwide leader in engineering education, ANSYS will accelerate research and development to improve the safety, performance and security of autonomous vehicles, next-generation products and smart devices.
With ANSYS support, IIT Bombay students will be equipped with research tools to revolutionize applications across sectors – from advanced driver assistance systems to green energy to digital security. By using ANSYS Pervasive Engineering Simulation™ software, university researchers will explore power estimation strategies in chip design to identify defective chips in the electronic components of vehicles. They will also study the strength and durability of parts created using the additive manufacturing process.
“The students and faculty at IIT Bombay are committed, driven and passionate,” said Rafiq Somani, South Asia Pacific and Middle East country manager at ANSYS. “ANSYS is thrilled to enable the next generation of engineering students with the strong research platform, cutting-edge tools and industry exposure necessary to advance the future of simulation.”
“IIT Bombay is committed to ‘Make in India,’ India’s national goal of achieving innovation,” said Devang Khakhar, director at IIT Bombay. “ANSYS’ support provides our students and faculty with a stronger ecosystem for engineering research, collaboration and development—empowering them to contribute to the national goal.”
