A Hands-on Introduction to Engineering Simulations, a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) launched on June 1, 2016 to over 21,000 enrolled students at edX.org, the largest enrollment for a Cornell MOOC at its launch date. This free 6-week course is taught by Rajesh Bhaskaran, the Swanson Director of Engineering Simulations at Cornell. The course ties fundamental understanding to actual practice and includes modules on rocket nozzles with SpaceX and wind turbine blade simulation. ANSYS Corporation provided generous support with the software and materials.
