Indonesian Engineering Students To Learn on Ansys Software

The Universitas Indonesia has chosen to deploy Ansoft software from Ansys within its Depok Campus (West Java), Indonesia. The Department of Electrical Engineering will use Ansoft academic products from Ansys for teaching programs and research activities in the telecommunications field. The software consists of a technology bundle that features HFSS (high frequency structural simulator) technology, enabling students to address high-frequency (HF), radio frequency (RF), and signal integrity (SI) problems.

"Deploying Ansoft academic products from Ansys allows our students to be trained on a cutting-edge commercial electromagnetic simulation tool set along with the underlying numerical methods and physics, making them globally competitive and ready for industry," said Professor Eko Tjipto Rahardjo, leader of the Antenna Microwave and Propagation Research Group in the Department of Electrical Engineering. "Using HFSS technology--which is the gold standard for high-frequency electromagnetics in the electronics industry--along with its linkages to mechanical and fluid dynamics solutions from Ansys will enhance our research capabilities for better collaboration between [our university] and other world-renowned universities and industry."

The Department of Electrical Engineering offers courses on antenna propagation and microwave circuits in the sixth and seventh semesters, respectively. By using HFSS to learn computational techniques in electromagnetics as well as commercial software packages used for high-frequency electronic design, students will have a better understanding of 3D finite element analysis, adaptive and automatic meshing techniques, and accuracy and convergence in the simulation of 3D structures such as antennas, circulators, couplers, and connectors. The engineering simulation tools provide a means for students to explore design tradeoffs.
