How to become a simulation expert: the engineer every company is looking for
Computer simulation is an indisputable reality for any industry that wishes to be relevant in today’s market. Today, it is possible to apply this technology at all levels and in the entire life cycle of any product. And the future is even more promising for professionals who work with simulation: new applications and industry demands can be met without limits with the application of this technology.
As the application becomes more advanced and accessible, the professional behind the technology will be charged for his mastery of the tools. Check out this content for steps and advantages in becoming an expert in computational simulation.
What are the advantages of the profession?
Becoming an expert in an emerging technology can give you the opportunity to compete for positions in renowned companies. And, more than that, participate in high-value projects for these companies. BMW and ANSYS, for example, are jointly developing tools for the development of autonomous vehicles. A cutting-edge project that intends not only to change the configurations of cities, but our own way of living.
By becoming an expert in simulation, the engineering professional opens new possibilities for his career and gains space in the job market. In a survey with graduates of the ESSS Institute, the largest school of computer simulation in Latin America, 97% of the specialization students stated that the training had a positive influence in obtaining new positions. In addition, more than 70% indicated an increase of at least 20% in their income, either through recognition in their current company or through their individual efforts in consulting and entrepreneurship.
