Altair and TU Delft sign campuswide license agreement for access to simulation, data analytics, AI, and HPC solutions.
Altair and TU Delft have signed a multiyear campuswide license agreement to provide nearly 30,000 students and faculty with access to simulation, data analytics, AI, and high-performance computing solutions. Under the new license, more than 25,000 students and 6,000 employees in various departments at TU Delft will benefit from an available pool of 1 million Altair Units, which will enable them to access Altair’s comprehensive portfolio of software solutions.
Altair Units, Altair’s patented, units-based subscription licensing model, provides users with access to any Altair solution they need. This flexibility is an excellent fit for TU Delft’s recent installation of DelftBlue, a new supercomputer that meets the growing need for extensive computing power to solve complex problems in physics, mechanics, and dynamics for students and faculty alike.
Sam Mahalingam, Chief Technology Officer of Altair, stated, “We are thrilled to announce our new agreement with TU Delft, underscoring our joint commitment to top-level research and high-quality education that prepares future engineers, data scientists, and developers for success.”
Frans Broos, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Manager at the Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science (EEMCS) faculty and Delft High Performance Computing Centre (DHPC), TU Delft, added, “Altair and TU Delft share a long collaborative history of providing students and staff with the industry’s best-in-class technology solutions like Altair HyperWorks and have used it for teaching, student projects, and research in the mechanical and electrical engineering departments.”
Altair and TU Delft are committed to providing students and staff with the best technology solutions to enable them to achieve outstanding results. Altair’s broad toolset, combined with the flexibility of Altair Units, will enable the university to create excellent conditions for both students and staff to use Altair’s comprehensive toolset more extensively.
