    We offer two intensive two-day courses, one for new and potential users of the COMSOL Multiphysics modeMM5Coverling software and one for experienced users.  Each course has as its foundation a First Principles approach, starting with the scientific concepts involved in your modeling goals and progressing to their application in your model design.  You will work through several models that illustrate crucial concepts and techniques.  Your texts will be the book, Multiphysics Modeling Using COMSOL 5 and MATLAB, and supplemental materials written by your instructor, Dr. Roger W. Pryor.  The book, supplements, and a copy of the COMSOL Multiphysics software for use in class are provided at no additional cost.

Register online, by e-mail, or by calling us at 248-626-3170.  Register early to ensure you get a seat for your preferred date.  Registration closes two weeks (10 business days) before the class date.
