Integration of Simulation Technology into Engineering Curricula: A University-Industry Workshop

ISTEC 2011  at  Cornell University, Ithaca, New York

July 22-23, 2011

Cornell University will be hosting a university-industry workshop on the integration of simulation technology into engineering curricula during July 22-23, 2011 in Ithaca, NY. This workshop will be of interest to all engineering faculty who use or would like to use simulation technology in their courses and projects. It will also be of interest to engineers in industry who work with simulation technology.

Currently, the deployment of sophisticated commercial simulation software in engineering curricula is primarily done by individual faculty in their respective courses without the widespread sharing and standardization of materials. In order to scale up the effective use of advanced simulation in curricula, there needs to be increased collaboration among the major stakeholders: educators, industry practitioners, software vendors, professional societies and funding agencies. The ISTEC 2011 workshop will bring together these major stakeholders in a sustained conversation on scaling up the effective use of advanced simulation in engineering curricula.

The following simulation technologies/areas are of particular interest:
-Finite-element analysis
-Computational fluid dynamics and heat transfer
-Multi-body dynamics and control
-General-purpose numerical analysis and programming
