Now in its 11th year, the FEKO Student Competition is open to all under-graduates and post-graduates who work on a supervised project in electromagnetic engineering and make use of FEKO. This annual competition is organized to give students an opportunity to showcase their work.
There are some great prizes up for grabs – a state-of-the-art laptop computer or attendance to an industry related conference anywhere in the world!
“Our distributors and resellers are committed to supporting engineering education and encourage the students in their regions to enter. By using FEKO they gain experience with a leading CEM tool that is widely used in industry,” explains Ulrich Jakobus, Director of EM Software & Systems–S.A. Institutions can apply for free Classroom Licenses for FEKO, which helps students to learn the basic electromagnetic principles or to investigate the finer intricacies of the different CEM techniques. The hybridization of these techniques enable advanced research that would not be possible with a code that relies on a single technique.
“We have recently increased the memory limit on classroom licenses from 512 MB to 1 GB.. This increase enables the demonstration of larger problems to students and is also more suitable for use by students in their individual projects,” says Gronum Smith, Team Leader Marketing at EMSS.
He added that students are most welcome to contact FEKO regarding free licenses for the competition.
“We are very pleased with the quality of entries we have received over the last ten years from across the globe. Winners have been selected from the University of Kent in the UK, University of Stellenbosch in South Africa and University of Villanova and Texas both in the USA.”
