Based at the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, Southampton University, the Computational Engineering and Design Centre (CEDC) uses powerful parallel and clustered computational facilities to develop and exploit models of engineering systems. Within CEDC, the Evolutionary Optimization Group has developed sophisticated design exploration software that allows the rapid comparison of various methods on new design tasks. The Centre also hosts the Southampton arm of the British Aerospace - Rolls-Royce University Technology Partnership for Design, which applies modern design search and optimization tools to problems in aerospace engineering and related fields.
CEDC offers consulting on most aspects of computer aided engineering with a strong major theme on design search and optimization.
ExperienceIn the past few years the Centre has worked with DERA, EDS, Cable and Wireless and Rolls-Royce.
