Dr. Mike Henson, Director, Center for Process Design and Control, UMass Amherst; Trustee and Secretary, Computer Aids for Chemical Engineering (CACHE)“Aspen Plus teaching modules provide practical experience and training on process simulation tools early in the undergraduate chemical engineering curricula. As a result, students can become proficient at process engineering much earlier in their undergraduate education than they were able to in the past. This gives our students a significant advantage when beginning their careers.”

Barry Johnston, Senior Lecturer and Undergraduate Officer, MIT“The use of AspenTech products in undergraduate education benefits students, universities, and the industry. The teaching modules from AspenTech enable students to gain hands-on experience with industry-standard tools. By using Aspen Plus now, our students are more quickly productive when they enter the workforce.”

Manolis Kotzabasakis, Executive Vice President, Products, AspenTech“From our roots in the ASPEN project at MIT in the late 1970s through today, AspenTech has worked in close collaboration with chemical engineering departments at the world’s leading universities. As the next generation of process engineers prepares to enter the workforce and address tomorrow’s energy challenges, we’re proud to support chemical engineering curricula and help the next generation of professionals receive hands-on experience with the world’s leading process simulator.”
