Education & Research

Universities and research centers are recognizing an urgent need for PLM, CAD, and 3D printing technologies in their labs and classrooms in order to train students in the latest tools and remain at the forefront of industry capabilities. As a supplier of these solutions, CATI assists institutions in acquiring the appropriate software and hardware for their needs.

  • Training the Next Generation.

    The goal of every educational institution is to provide its students with a top-tier education. Introducing them to the latest software tools is integral to preparing the next generation of engineers. These software skills are foundational, but also provide students the opportunity to design and simulate unique materials and conditions, fueling their future creativity.

  • Keeping Top Talent.

    Attracting and retaining talented individuals is crucial for business and for educational institutions. Researchers and designers should never be limited by their tools. CAE software allows skilled engineers to pursue the next big advance, and contributes to a culture of innovation with robust collaboration capabilities.

  • Leading the Charge.

    Researchers on the leading edge of design need access to the latest information and the most advanced tools to pursue their work. CATI provides CAE solutions that can model new materials and simulate unique conditions, and includes the data analysis tools to help researchers make the most of their work. 

  • Demonstrating Impact.

    In a competitive funding landscape, demonstrating the real-world impact of research is critical. CAE software doesn’t just enable innovation—powerful simulation and analysis tools help researchers tell a compelling story that does justice to the significance of their work, and strengthens the case for future funding.
