Our graduate training program in FEA modeling and simulation fundamentals has received strong demand from working professionals seeking to strengthen skills for career advancement or a pivot to a new industry. I’ve talked with many program participants and their employers and have consistently heard that they value our NAFEMS membership and the credibility conferred to our program by the NAFEMS approval process. Our relationship with NAFEMS also offers a clear pathway to professional certification via the PSE credentials, and many participants in our program have cited this as a key reason they chose us.
