Last Wednesday, we hosted a FEM-simulation workshop for students from the TU Industrial Design Engineering master track IPD. After a short introduction of our services and expertise, we challenged the attendees to set up a FEM-simulation themselves! There were different load cases of a product to be simulated and the students presented their results afterwards to learn from each other and to receive feedback. They were encouraged to think of optimisations to iteratively improve their product.
The students did outstandingly well! They jumped into the simulations and, with the help of our colleagues, were ultimately able to produce simple simulations. One student concluded afterwards: ‘You could have written a whole bunch of text to explain what FEM means, but I don’t think I would have truly understood it if I had not followed this workshop.’
The workshop was finished with drinks and snacks outside of the office, while the sun began to set. We’re definitely happy with how the workshop turned out and might host more in the future!
