Registration is now open for intensive two-day courses offered by Pryor Knowledge Systems, starting in September of 2012, in Troy, Michigan. COMSOL Multiphysics® software is used by engineers and scientists in many industries to simulate the functions of their device designs prior to making physical prototypes or modifications to current products. The instructor for these courses, Dr. Roger W. Pryor, CEO of Pryor Knowledge Systems, says, “Having a thorough guided experience in the use of technical software like this pays off in much more effective and efficient designs at a lower development cost and shorter time to market. We give the new or potential user of COMSOL Multiphysics a jump-start on their first models, and we can also help the experienced user with more advanced, sophisticated approaches to more complex modeling.”
The introductory course, “Initiation into First Principles COMSOL Multiphysics Modeling”, and the advanced course, “Advanced First Principles COMSOL Multiphysics Modeling” will each be offered approximately once each quarter in 2012 and 2013. Each course has as its foundation a First Principles approach, starting with the scientific concepts involved in the modeling goals and progressing to their application in the model design. The course utilizes a combination of theory-based and applied lectures, with instructor-assisted model building sessions.
Dr. Roger Pryor is an experienced educator. He has taught physics, engineering, and materials science courses in the academic settings of the Pennsylvania State University, the University of Connecticut and Wayne State University in Michigan, and he has trained engineers, scientists and technical associates in both formal and informal industrial settings at Bell Laboratories and at Pitney Bowes. He is the author of two college textbooks, including “Multiphysics Modeling Using COMSOL 4”, which will be used in these courses.
Additional information regarding these course offerings is available on the Pryor Knowledge Systems website. Early registration is recommended, as seating is limited.
