Top Skills Required to Learn FEA

 

Finite Element Analysis, commonly abbreviated as FEA, is one of the most important process in design engineering. FEA has application in engineering domains from manufacturing nails to building rockets. FEA especially finds importance in the automotive industry. FEA engineers help test new product designs in simulations that mimic real world conditions, eliminating the need to build physical prototype. 

 

This is done with the help of softwares, like SOLIDWORKS, LS-DYNA, ANSYS and Hypermesh. These softwares allow design engineers to simulate their Computer Aided Design (CAD) models in real world conditions, allowing them to test exactly how the final product would behave. 

 

This helps reduce testing costs and the time taken to complete the designing process. Application of FEA in engineering helps automotive manufacturers to build safer and sustainable vehicles for their customers.

 

Obviously, as a mechanical engineer, you’re keen to learn more about the different skills required for FEA. In this blog post, we’ll learn more about this, and help you answer your question - “How can I be a good FEA Engineer”. 

 

Top Skills Required to Learn FEA 

 

Top Skills Required to Become an FEA Engineer

 

Critical and Analytical Thinking

 

One of the most essential skills required for being an FEA engineer is critical and analytical thinking. You will require need the ability to analyse the reporst and make recommendations to improve the efficiency of the product

 

Software skills

You need to possess the ability to evade common errors that will come up while running an FEA. 

Knowledge of software like ANSYS, LS-DYNA, ANSA and SolidWorks is essential.

 

Communication Skills

 

As an FEA analyst/engineer, you will be working with other design engineers to ensure that your organisation’s visions are met. That being the case, you will need to communicate and collaborate with some of the best minds in the automotive industry. Companies across the world tend to look for talented individuals who are able to communicate their needs, priorities and issues appropriately. 

 

Aptitude 

 

You will need to develop the ability to translate data into actionable intelligence. You will need a strong mathematical aptitude and your fundamentals in math is paramount in helping you start a career as a FEA engineer.

 

The most important skill you’ll need to learn - FEA


Being a Finite Elements Analysis Engineer, the most crucial repertoire that you’ll need under your belt is performing the accurate Finite Element Analysis. Obviously, this is the single most important thing that the recruiters would look for as well.

 

How to Learn Finite Element Analysis?

 

While there are several methods to go about learning Finite Elements Analysis, the most convenient, effective, and easy method to learn is online. There are many courses on offer by different institutes that will help you learn this skill. However, in order to choose the right one, you will need to look out for the following aspects. 

 

  1. The course should provide you with practical experience that will give you a taste of what your responsibilities will look like as an FEA engineer. 
  2. The course should be curated to help you become job-ready. 
  3. The course should be comprehensive, and should help you know everything you need to know not only about FEA, but also the software of your choice. 
  4. The course should be curated and fine-tuned based on what the recruiters are looking for.
