Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), a leading engineering and research university, has selected Ciespace CFD to be used in the instruction of computer-aided engineering (CAE) technology to graduate students.

Ciespace CFD is the first end user application made available on the Company’s SaaS-based mechanical engineering platform. Ciespace CFD is the industry’s first browser-based end-to-end CFD solution leveraging the best in class OpenFOAM® solver; empowering engineers to simulate more in less time.

“We always strive to offer our student’s access to technology at the cutting edge,” said Professor Allen Robinson, Department Head and Raymond J. Lane Distinguished Professor, Mechanical Engineering at CMU. “It is our desire to equip our graduates with the skills for them to excel; and we see positioning them to take advantage of the growing use of SaaS software in the mechanical engineering space playing a part in this success. We were also attracted to the open nature of the Ciespace platform, supporting the inclusion of solvers customized by students or faculty making them more accessible.”

“Ciespace sees the support of leading educational institutions as crucial to our long term success,” said Mr. Kevin Kerns, CEO “Our ability to get cutting-edge simulation tools into the hands of the newest generation of engineers is an investment in both our youngest engineers as well as in the future of Ciespace. We’re quite pleased that CMU made the decision to partner with us.”
