Vignan's Foundation for Science, Technology & Research (Deemed to be University) has established advanced facilities to propagate emerging technologies and train manpower in the field of computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing. This centre acts as a crucial link to foster the development of high value-added services and to streamline product innovation processes to the industries

The primary function of the Centres is to promote Computer-Aided-Engineering (CAE) applications in the field of Mechanical Engineering and develop teaching and research expertise for the benefit of students and industry personnel. The Centre promotes University-Industry interaction through collaborative research programmes, extension courses and consultancy services. The Centre is actively assisting the local industries in developing mechanism, die and mould making, complex part manufacturing, rapid prototyping and reverse engineering applications.

Computer-aided engineering is playing a growing role in higher education in the disciplines of science and engineering. At the undergraduate level, students use engineering simulation to learn physics principles and gain hands-on, real-world experience that can jump-start their careers. At the postgraduate level, researchers apply simulation tools to solve complex application problems. Commercial organizations regularly partner with educational institutions to foster innovative research - sometimes at the basic level - that can lead to breakthrough solutions.

The ideal simulation solution is one that scales for application by a wide range of users, from multiple teachers to students to researchers. ANSYS provides a wide range of affordable technologies and services to help meet the growing and diverse needs of academia. Universities, colleges and research institutes around the world turn to ANSYS for high-quality simulation solutions to ensure students receive the best possible education.

    Computer Numeric Control (CNC) is the automation of machine tools that are operated by precisely programmed commands encoded on a storage medium (computer command module, usually located on the device) as opposed to controlled manually by hand wheels or levers, or mechanically automated by cams alone. Most NC today is computer (or computerized) numerical control (CNC) in which computers play an integral part of the control.

    In modern CNC systems, end-to-end component design is highly automated using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) programs. The programs produce a computer file that is interpreted to extract the commands needed to operate a particular machine by use of a post processor, and then loaded into the CNC machines for production. Since any particular component might require the use of a number of different tools - drills, saws, etc. - modern machines often combine multiple tools into a single "cell". In other installations, a number of different machines are used with an external controller and human or robotic operators that move the component from machine to machine. In either case, the series of steps needed to produce any part is highly automated and produces a part that closely matches the original CAD design.
