Global Academic Program - More than Just Licenses!
We are committed to preparing students for a successful engineering career by educating them in the most advanced simulation tool available, STAR-CCM+. Our "more than just licenses" philosophy is dedicated to ensuring students, professors and grads have access to the latest info, training & support to guarantee success in academia and beyond.
  • Find out how CD-adapco's Global Academic Program is educating tomorrow's engineers today!
  • STAR-CCM+ is widely used in the simulation of Formula SAE Cars
  • Our teaching modules have been developed under the guidance of Professor David Gosman and Milovan Peric, author of the widely used book, Computational Methods for Fluid Dynamics.
  • Are the computers in the lab fully occupied? Are you off-campus and have an assignment or project due tomorrow? How about a last minute tweak to the competition vehicle? Wouldn't it be nice if you had your very own STAR-CCM+ license to ease the pain of these situations?
