SCIA is a leading provider of Structural Design and Analysis Software for the Civil and Structural Engineer.
We are continuously inspired by our users to drive innovation in structural engineering and analysis software. For more than 40 years, we’ve been working with engineering offices to advance structural analysis and design software with the goal of providing reliable software that helps engineers working faster and smarter.
As, they have grown, we have grown. Our software is now localized in 14 languages, supports 20 national standards, and is distributed to more than 50 countries, giving us a truly global reach allowing us to effectively serve both regional and multi-national engineering firms working on all types of projects all over the world. With our strong dedication to R&D and innovation, we are pushing forward advances in BIM technology, making our engineering software transparent and even customizable.
After using SCIA Engineer for more than 20 years, we have seen it evolve from a powerful FEM software for the construction industry to a package containing all functionality that a modern engineering office may require.
SCIA Engineer’s primary benefit is that we can model steel, reinforced concrete, composite and timber elements all within one model. The web based eLearning tutorials allow new users to get started quickly.
We use SCIA Engineer for both small and large projects. The modelling tools enable us to build up analysis models very quickly from 3D geometry. The IFC, DWG and XML file formats make a fast and efficient communication possible with the other project parties.
