Teaching systems Engineering with CATIA

From mechatronics to connected products & model-enterprise
Prepare your students for the Future of Industry


As products become more complex, with systems combining mechanics, electronics, software, control systems, and connectivity, engineering students need to be trained on Systems Engineering. However, according to a 2020 survey by the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE), 54% of students think they are either ill-prepared or very ill-prepared in Model-Based System Engineering. It’s time to equip students with relevant future-ready skills and upskill them on Systems Engineering!

To address this challenge, the Systems Engineering solution from Dassault Systèmes delivers a unique, open and extensible development platform – a platform that fully integrates the cross-discipline modeling, simulation, verification and business process support needed for developing complex cyber-physical products. Our solution will support you in preparing your students for the challenges facing industry with Model-based Design, MBSE, Mechatronics or even Cyber-Physical Systems approaches.

Discover now our new Edu offer for Systems Engineering, that includes apps, learning content and Communities to transition to Systems Engineering.

A new world of Apps, Learning content and Community

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform, by including Apps, Learning Content and Community, delivers a unique, open and extensible platform that fully integrates the cross-discipline modeling, simulation, verification and business process support needed for developing complex systems and products.

You need apps, we’ve got them! The 3DEXPERIENCE platform for Education helps you prepare your students for the Future of Industry and improve their employability by giving them access to Systems Engineering solutions.

We offer the ideal solution for all mechatronics, Model-based design, MBSE and cyber-physical systems projects. Essential for modeling modern electro-mechanical systems, simulating their behavior and optimizing smart products, our solution comes with numerous libraries representing the physics of diverse technologies and phenomena.

Real electro-mechanical systems can be completely virtualized, connected and controlled using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, reflecting software-in-the-loop and hardware-in-the-loop methodologies and enabling a ‘virtual twin’ approach. These features open up the vast field of virtual labs, remote-control learning devices and ‘flip lab’ practices.

Empower your students with this multi-disciplinary solution that lets them collaborate in the classroom or remotely.

Included in the offer:

Package of academic roles including:

3DEXPERIENCE Engineer + Engineering Expert + Systems Engineer + CATIA Magic.

We develop Teaching and Learning Experiences tailored precisely for you. We understand you need content like Videos/Webinars/Courses/Learning paths to inspire your teaching — and we’ve worked hard to deliver the best yet! You can access all this through your customized dashboard, directly on the platform. On top of that, you’ll be invited regularly to private webinars to expand your know-how in specific topics.
