Altair Engineering Internship Program to Offer Real-World Experience and Employment Opportunities to Students

Altair will choose two university sophomore students for paid internships

TROY, Mich., Sept. 26, 2011 — (PRNewswire) — Altair Engineering, Inc., a leading global provider of simulation technology and engineering services, today announced that it will select two engineering students to participate in a paid, two-summer internship program during 2012 and 2013. The initiative is part of Altair's ongoing internship program that will extend to future years as well, as new students cycle into the program annually.

Those eligible for the internships include engineering students who will be completing their sophomore year in 2012 and are enrolled in ABET-accredited engineering programs in the United States. Students can apply by visiting www.altair.com/careers and clicking on the University Internship Program tab.

Altair created the program to enable students to learn the fundamentals of computer-aided engineering (CAE), a crucial discipline for developing simulations that businesses use for designing and perfecting everything from automobiles and airlines to computer chips and golf clubs.

The students will gain the opportunity to work closely with experts at Altair, a high-tech global engineering firm known for its CAE software and consulting services for engineering, computing and business analytics. The company employs more than 1,500 people in North America, South America, Europe and Asia/Pacific. Altair's HyperWorks is one of the world's most popular suites of computer-aided engineering software, offering sophisticated capabilities for finite element analysis and computer simulation.

For the internship program, Altair is interested in candidates who are pursuing concentrations in mechanical, civil or aerospace engineering. Students applying for the positions will be evaluated on their desire for computer-simulation careers, aptitude for CAE and academic performance.

The two students who are selected will complete a paid summer internship in the HyperWorks support organization in 2012. They will work with industry customers, project management teams, the HyperWorks sales force and other Altair business units. In the summer of 2013, the same students will return for an internship with Altair's ProductDesign division, learning how the design process takes place within a simulation-driven engineering project.

Interns who complete the two-summer program will be reviewed for possible fulltime employment at Altair's headquarters in Troy, Mich., or on-site with one of Altair's industry-leading customers or partners.

The summer internships complement Altair's longstanding programs in the educational community that are focused on providing collaboration tools and access to the company's world-class technology and engineering expertise. Graduates of Altair's program often have moved into rewarding careers in the engineering field.

"The Altair Engineering internship program jump-started my career by exposing me to the real-world working environment early in my life," said former summer intern Zul Zulkarnain, who today is an Altair account manager. "The valuable hands-on experience gained from working with several different business units at Altair complemented my classroom experience at Kettering University, and that has contributed tremendously to my growth as a professional."
