This course is intended to teach students the usage of all features of SigFit with supporting theoretical background. Working knowledge of the finite element software to be used and the optical software to be used is highly advantageous but not required.

Unfamiliarity with either finite element and/or optical analysis tools will limit the student’s ability to understand the material deeply but will not prohibit learning and participation. Finite element analysts and optical analysts who work together as colleagues will likely benefit from attending together in order to enhance their ability to understand each other’s disciplines and collaborate more cooperatively.
