Shape the engineers of the future

Empower new pathways in STEM education with design optimization

Companies worldwide struggle to find qualified Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) employees to drive innovation in the simulation based product development process. Moreover, the usage of optimization becomes more and more mandatory when it comes to creating better designs through simulation.

With ESTECO Academy, we equip educators to teach students how to approach multidisciplinary engineering problems using modeFRONTIER optimization software together with other simulation tools. PhD and postgraduate students can also benefit from our optimization-driven technology to foster innovation in their research projects.

Tailored for your academic needs



Provide your students a first-hand experience with a professional optimization tool and help them achieve new skills in engineering simulation that employers are looking for. Contact us to know more about our academic offer for classes.



Improve your research work in the engineering field with modeFRONTIER design exploration and optimization capabilities. Find out how you can access our optimization tool.
