Why Simulate?

"The changing role of Engineering Simulation is really about business drivers for improved competitiveness.

  • Increase Innovation
  • Increase Product Performance
  • Improve Quality/Risk Management
  • Reduce Time to Market
  • Reduce Cost

Engineering Simulation is a major key to all five business drivers in providing a better understanding of product and process behavior, variability, and risk."

Formal Courses (for small groups)

SIMTEQ Engineering offers industry and academia comprehensive in-person and online courses. Students and lecturers may attend any course offered by SIMTEQ at a much reduced rate when capacity allows.

All the courses are complemented with exercises throughout the training to ensure practical experience and comprehension of the content.

Courses are presented in small groups to allow for one-on-one engagement and constant interaction between trainer and trainee.

See here for the list of available courses and book your attendance on the calendar.

MSC LearningCentre

Students and lecturers at Universities with subscription agreements with MSC One in place has automatic access to the complete portfolio of commercial courses through the MSC LearningCentre.

To gain access to the courses and certification opportunities, download and install the MSC LearningCentre software from the MSC DownloadCentre and create a profile through which you will be able to sign up for courses, track your progress and even complete certifications to add to your CV.
Student Technology Ambassador

Hexagon Student Ambassador Program

Hexagon’s Student Ambassador Program is a unique and exciting opportunity for students to gain valuable knowledge and skills on industry leading Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) and simulation technology and to build professional networks and relationships to meet the challenges of tomorrow.​

Not only does the program provide the student ambassadors with free access to Hexagon | MSC Software’s world-class CAE and simulation software, but it also give students access to the associated training material, industry developments and access to mentorship to build careers. The program is an opportunity for the student to build networks between Hexagon and universities.​

As Hexagon is the industry leader when it comes to simulation technology, production software and metrology equipment, the ambassador program is the ideal starting platform to prepare engineering students for internships and career startups. Hexagon’s technology has enormous reaches and extensive influences on the world today. The global company positioned itself to drive smart manufacturing, leveraging data of the real and virtual world to enhance autonomy and sustainability.​

The ideal student candidate is a talented individual, passionate about engineering and people with the vision to solve engineering challenges with the help of technology to improve the quality of each day to be better than the one of yesterday. The ideal student candidate will have a special interest for CAE and simulation technology, a natural excitement to initiate conversation on Hexagon’s technologies on campus and online as well as a can-do attitude. The ambassador with liaise with both Hexagon and the local business partner, SIMTEQ Engineering for guidance, insights and tasks.​

Student Versions

MSC has student versions available for some of its products. These student versions have all the capabilities of the normal commercial software versions but it is limited on the size of the model that can be analysed.

In most cases, these student versions will be sufficient for all the undergraduate modules and the limitations will only become a concern for lecturers and postgraduate students where larger and more complex models need to be analysed.

Downloading student versions


The student versions can be downloaded from the MSC Software academia page. Before a you will be able to download a student version you will first need to register and provide an image of your student card as proof of you enrolment.
