Showcasing Talent with the FEKO Student Competition

Engineering students from across the globe are once again invited to compete in the popular FEKO Student Competition. The competition is open to all under-graduate and post-graduate students who work on a supervised project in the area of electromagnetic engineering and make use of FEKO, Altair's comprehensive electromagnetic (EM) analysis software suite, included in HyperWorks®.

The competition is an ideal opportunity for students to showcase their work in FEKO and some attractive prizes are up for grabs – a state-of-the-art laptop computer or attendance to an Altair ATC or ATCx, conference series, which are hosted around the world each year.

“Since FEKO is now part of Altair HyperWorks, the competition is being launched through the Altair academic website ( which provides us with a much larger audience so we are expecting the competition to be even more popular than in the past,” explains Gronum Smith, Marketing Director EM Solutions at Altair.

Once registered the participants will receive further details on requirements, links to support forums, and guides.  Deadline for entries is 30 September 2015.  More information can be found on the Altair University website.

FEKO has now also been added to the Altair Support Forum.  Here students can discuss any issues they experience with FEKO, in real-time, whilst working on any of their projects.  Our support engineers around the world are active on the forum so there is always someone available to answer any questions.  This hands-on support is invaluable to students and we encourage them to register on the Forum.
