MSC Nastran is the world's most widely used Finite Element Analysis (FEA) solver, and the primary reason why MSC Software was recognized as one of the "10 Original Software Companies" in 2011.
MSC Nastran recognized as the most credible multidisciplinary solver in the world by stress and load analyzes, dynamic vibrations and thermal gradients in real-world systems.
Our course program consists of a basic course and a number of special courses.
