Why this programme?
The course presents the fundamental concepts and methodologies of finite element calculation which is the base of virtual simulation techniques, widely used in the automotive sector. It also offers a specific vision of virtual reality techniques, essential today in order to reduce development time and costs and to ensure the quality and customer orientation of all designs.
Aims

After completing this course students will be able to:

1. Know the simulation techniques used in the development process of the bodywork structure and its components.

2. Identify the CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) tools applied nowadays in the car industry, the application areas and the most common load cases.

3. Interpret the results obtained with the different CAE disciplines, and to know how they are used in the decision making processes.

4. Understand the geometry optimization process through the use of CAE techniques, by studying practical examples

5. Know the main virtual development processes of bodyworks: DMU, tolerance management and virtual reality, among others.

Who is it for?
Graduate students in Automotive, Chemical or Industrial Engineering, Materials Science, Product Design or equivalent.
Working professionals or experienced in the automotive industry.
