Objective of this Industry-Academia Interaction through Altair Design Innovation Center is to develop and facilitate competency on commercial FEM software from Altair called HyperWorks. Also aid students research activity with the help of our FEM code. This also helps in proving Skilled man power which are in turn useful to Altair customers and prospects. This Innovation Centre is based on HyperWorks Suite of Products. The goals include:
1. Provide Unlimited Student-License to any active student of KLE Tech during his degree or Post graduation degree course for his personal Laptop/Desktop so that he can actively pursue Altair HyperWorks Technology.
2. Facilitate Various Online Learning and certification courses (listed in Annexure). No limit to the number of students taking part in this initiative. Only certified students list will be published in Altair Industry outreach portal to facilitate Internship and placement at Altair, Altair Customers, Altair Distributors, and Altair Prospects.
3. Following eBooks to be used for framing Syllabus and as a reference book for the planned Industry oriented courses at KLE Tech. Note that these are by default used as Reference book for the certification courses of Altair. This will help KLE TECH to facilitate Syllabus making for Mechanical P.G and U.G courses.
a.FEM: Practical Aspects of Finite Element Simulation (A Study Guide)
b. Optimization: Practical Aspects of Structural Optimization (A Study Guide)
c. Multi Body Dynamics: Practical Aspects of Multi-Body Simulation with HyperWorks
d. Non- Linear Explicit Simulation: Crash Analysis with RADIOSS – A Study Guide
e. DOE Studies: Design of Experiments with HyperStudy – A Study Guide
f. Additive Manufacturing: A Practical Introduction to solidThinking Inspire g. Composites: Introduction to Practical aspects of Composites
h. Ease of Simulation: A practical introduction to Inspire
i. Dynamics: Learn Dynamic Analysis with Altair OptiStruct
j. Machine Learning: Introduction into Fit Approximations with Altair HyperStudy
4. Altair to help KLE Tech on following: It will help the institution to move up to the next level of competency in FEM techniques.
a. Assistance to sponsored Industry R&D projects,
b. Intensive Faculty Development Program (FDP) – 2 in a year, 2/3 days each
c. Access to our Altair calendar Training to faculties – Train the Trainer program
d. Project work to students (One batch, max 3 students per batch)
Speaking on the occasion, Pavan Kumar, Managing Director, Altair India, said, “We are honoured to be selected as the technology partner for KLE Technological University. We are sure that the partnership will result in KLE producing future ready engineers.”
Speaking on the partnership, Dr.Ashok Shettar, Vice Chancellor, KLE Technological University, Hubballi said “Collaboration with Altair will help us to expose our students to industry relevant technologies and tools making them industry-ready.”
KLE TECH is a Treasure of Knowledge. Altair to pursue in converting this knowledge to applied science useful to society. This MOU is a walk towards bigger collaboration to create win-win situation.
