The Scope of a CFD Engineering Course with Regards to Career Opportunities

logo

Skill-Lync

Computer simulation of fluid flow is an essential part of the product design process. Whether it is a new automobile, wind turbine or chemical reactor, CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulations are used to provide insights into the performance of these products. A CFD engineering course provides knowledge on the various techniques employed to carry out testing-related activities efficiently.

If you're interested in this aspect of mechanical engineering, then opting for Skill-Lync's Post Graduate Program in Computational Fluid Dynamics will help you gain the expertise needed to bag a job in this domain. 

 

The Scope of a CFD Engineering Course with Regards to Career Opportunities

 

Who is a Computational Fluid Dynamics Engineer?

A Computational Fluid Dynamics engineer uses various software to analyse fluids' flow, pressure distribution, turbulence, heat and mass transfer. They are trained for industrial purposes like designing an air-conditioning system and applications in the automotive industry and aerospace industry, among others. 

The responsibilities of CFD engineers vary according to the organisation; however, some of their primary duties may include:

  • Defining the mesh attributes and assigning the necessary boundary conditions.
  • Conducting validations by comparing simulation results with physical test data.
  • Preparing high-quality technical reports.
  • Solving the simulation convergence issues.
  • Validating mechanical design and proposing solutions to improve design modifications.
  • Automating processes and reducing simulation time using simple ML techniques.

 

How is Computational Fluid Dynamics Useful in Mechanical Engineering?

The major players in CFD are mechanical engineering companies that typically deal with automobiles and other mechanical parts that require fluid flow analysis before manufacturing.

The analysis results obtained using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) technology can assist in the decision-making process on new product development and modifications to existing products.

 

What is the Scope for Jobs in the Computational Fluid Dynamics Engineering Domain?

The demand for CFD engineers is gradually gaining speed owing to the expected growth in the CFD market - $3428 million by 2027. They are the ones who perform all the numerical analyses to solve the complex issues related to fluid dynamics. Career opportunities for CFD engineers are opening up in several sectors, such as:

  • Biomedical
  • Chemical process engineering
  • Civil engineering
  • Defence
  • Electronics cooling 

 

Key Job Opportunities after Completing a Computational Fluid Dynamics Engineering Course

 

  • Aerodynamics Engineer: One of the primary responsibilities of an aerodynamics engineer is improving and validating the aerodynamic and aeroacoustics design of the rotor. Additionally, they would perform the aerodynamic integration of the wind turbine in the fleet contributing to the definition of operational and safety strategies.

 

  • Microelectronics Numerical Simulation Engineer: In this role, an individual would prepare geometry models based on design inputs received and perform meshing with appropriate mesh densities depending on requirements. Additionally, they would carry out simulations to provide risk assessments and design guidelines.

 

  • Flow and Thermal Engineer: An engineer in this role evaluates the flow and thermal performance of products/subsystems/systems depending on the industry they work in - Vehicle, Aerospace and Electrical. They also participate in the development of various simulation modelling methodologies.

 

About Skill-Lync's Post Graduate Program in Computational Fluid Dynamics

Skill-Lync has developed a 32-week long Post Graduate Program in Computational Fluid Dynamics with an intensive curriculum aligned with industry needs and standards. The course will give you the knowledge needed to prepare for placement drives and interviews and will provide you with hands-on training on the different CFD software platforms commonly used in the industry.

The most popular software platforms in CFD are:

 

The course covers these platforms and also conducts sessions and projects where you will be able to work on a problem set in the platform you are being trained in.

The aim is not only to make you job-ready but also to give you an edge over your peers. Additionally, at the end of the course, you will receive a course completion certificate, and if you're in the top 5% of the class, you will also receive a merit certificate. These certifications, along with the knowledge and skills you gain from the course itself, may help you secure your dream job. 

 

Final Thoughts

The scope of CFD is increasing day by day. This is because of the technological progress in the manufacturing and material science fields. The best way to get started as a CFD engineer is by enrolling in an accredited engineering program.
