Want to use your structural engineering skills to contribute to progressing the health and life sciences industry?

Now more than ever, it is important that we band together as a society to overcome the heath issues facing us today.  Our SIMULIA Academy how-to playlist on YouTube now features a fifteen-part training series for our software users to better understand how to structurally engineer a device crucial for medical professionals to administer shots and vaccines – you guessed it, this device is known as the syringe. Our state-of-the-art simulation software allows our engineers the ability to analyze a syringe’s geometry, apply forces, test materials and optimize designs before a physical prototype is produced, which leads to substantial savings in time & cost whiles ensuring design safety.

Here is a list of Syringe Series tutorials, including a brief description of what technical engineering skills you can expect to learn:
