SolidProfessor, Swift Calcs Partner to Release Online Course

solidprofessor_logoSAN DIEGO, CA, Mar 6, 2017 – SolidProfessor and Swift Calcs announced their new Swift Calcs Essentials course, the first online course released by Swift Calcs. This course takes a deep dive into performing calculations to learn a wide range of functionality in the Swift Calcs platform, including defining user variables, defining and using functions, calculating with units, solving equations, creating plots, and accessing material in thermodynamic databases.

SolidProfessor’s Swift Calcs Essentials course is approximately 2.5 hours of instruction spread across 29 lessons. One lesson focuses on Swift Calcs for Onshape, which allows engineers to utilize Swift Calcs worksheets directly in Onshape documents. The Swift Calcs for Onshape app enables designers to use their Swift Calcs calculations to directly drive CAD geometry through variables. The geometry is automatically updated in real-time. With built-in Onshape integration, calculations connect directly to 3D models.

Members can also learn how to harness the Swift Calcs system to perform engineering design and analysis calculations quickly and easily. In Swift Calcs, engineers can work with variables, functions, vectors, arrays, and matrices to perform virtually any calculation, and plot data easily on charts and graphs. Learn how to work with Swift Calcs worksheets, including adding mathematics to a worksheet, text to a worksheet, and images and videos to a worksheet. Perform calculations in swift calcs, including solving equations, solving differential equations, plotting functions and data, importing data, calculating with units, accessing engineering databases, and more. Share and embed Swift Calcs projects and worksheets with other users.

SolidProfessor’s Swift Calcs course was created in partnership with founder and CEO of Swift Calcs Brentan Alexander. Alexander received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford, his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.).

Alexander shares his excitement. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with SolidProfessor to announce the Swift Calcs Essentials course. Swift Calcs represents a new paradigm in scientific and engineering computing, and SolidProfessor, as the go-to provider of online instruction for today’s sophisticated engineering tools, allows us to provide users with a comprehensive, self-paced training course that teaches the core concepts and capabilities of Swift Calcs quickly and effectively.”
