NAFEMS :: Learning Hub

Welcome to the NAFEMS Learning Hub!

Learning hub home screen

As the only worldwide independent association dedicated to serving tens of thousands of individuals working with engineering modeling, analysis & simulation, NAFEMS wanted to provide its members with a clear path for professional development. The NAFEMS :: Learning Hub aims to deliver guided learning using the resources developed, collected, and categorized by NAFEMS over the years.

We started this effort in 2019, and we will continue to add content to the NAFEMS :: Learning Hub due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback and usage of this platform.

As a NAFEMS member, you will have access to nearly 20 hours of free instructional material, which range from quick learning (<30 minutes) courses aimed at explaining key concepts to detailed learning (~3 hours). The good news is that several more courses are in the works and we are always working to add content.
