For development of software for the simulation of complex problems in engineering mechanics.

Bruce Engelmann serves as Chief Technology Officer of Dassault Systèmes Simulia Corp. He is responsible for growing SIMULIA’s technology leadership position and guiding the company’s technical software development in response to customers' long-term business requirements.

Bruce is a thought leader and champion of multiphysics driven design, optimization, incorporating advanced materials and understanding their complex behavior at all scales. He has led a variety of technology and advanced mechanics innovations in simulation software for nearly 20 years and he directed the development of Abaqus/Explicit in the early years before taking the CTO role in 2001.

Bruce was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 2018.

Before joining SIMULIA, Bruce received his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering and Applied Mechanics at Northwestern University in 1986 and following that became a lead software developer at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, as well as working as a principal in multiple start-up companies involved in hardware and software development including Electric Vehicle development at US Electricar in the mid 90’s.

His interests in multiphysics finite element simulation extend back 35 years to when he first realized that computers were going to transform engineering as we know it.
