ANSYS Supports University in Breaking New Ground with Engineering Simulation Technology

SOUTHPOINTE, PA – September 21, 2009 – ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANSS), a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today announced that it is the exclusive provider of multiphysics engineering simulation software at — and the namesake of — a new research and educational facility at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee (UWM) College of Engineering and Applied Science. The ANSYS Institute for Industrial Innovation (AI3) will serve as a portal for businesses seeking to partner with the College of Engineering and Applied Science on specific engineering projects. Just as important, AI3 will provide students with state-of-the-art engineering simulation software tools, enabling hands-on experience along with the opportunity to develop innovative design solutions for industry-sponsored projects. UWM chose ANSYS exclusively based on a number of factors: the Company’s industry-leading expertise in the field of engineering simulation technology and its comprehensive multiphysics portfolio that can be scaled to meet users’ needs. In addition, ANSYS is the preferred simulation software provider to many corporations supplying engineering projects for the program.

“ANSYS support at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee will enable students to get first-hand experience working with the comprehensive product portfolio from ANSYS — the most complete engineering simulation technology available in the world. This not only benefits students and researchers by providing them with an excellent toolset, but also promotes the expansion of ANSYS technology usage once students enter the workforce,” said Paul Lethbridge, academic product strategy and planning manager at ANSYS, Inc. “From an industry perspective, the ANSYS Institute for Industrial Innovation has the opportunity to leverage Simulation Driven Product Development™ in directing the design of real-world, innovative solutions.”

The institute is also charged with dramatically increasing the college’s research links with business and industry as well as fostering economic growth and development in southeastern Wisconsin through tech transfer and industry assistance. “The first step in forging more connections with area companies involves our students and faculty participating in curricular and research programs that address local industry’s problems or areas of interest,” said Michael Lovell, dean, UWM, College of Engineering and Applied Science. “Multiphysics simulation software from ANSYS gives us the exact tools we need to foster innovation and creativity in our students. With it, we can offer industries the flexibility and cost-savings benefits of computer simulation in investigation of engineering designs.” Lovell added that partnerships spawned at the institute will give industry access to potential new employees that are already trained using ANSYS technologies.

About University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee College of Engineering and Applied Science
The College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee is considered one of the premier engineering schools in the United States. The College’s new ANSYS Institute for Industrial Innovation at the Kenwood campus will utilize simulation technology from ANSYS to focus on current and emerging industry research in health care, advanced manufacturing, biomedical engineering and freshwater sciences. Research and coursework in these industries represent current and emerging strengths of the southeastern Wisconsin region. Research conducted at the new facility is meant to stimulate the area’s economy by focusing on these key industries.
