Three decades ago, it was the passion for Computer Aided Engineering that motivated a team of engineers and their supervising professor to position their solutions in the world of engineering simulation.

Today, thinking in the same way and keeping their ideas intact, BETA CAE Systems continues the same path to deliver cutting-edge engineering simulation technology.


The engineering simulation industry is a rapidly growing segment that drives innovation and cost reduction, by substituting a big proportion of physical tests, and by modeling concept systems on computers to comprehend their behavior. As the sector continues to expand, it enhances the performance of the offered software and expands the portfolio of offered solutions.

Examples of dominating current trends in the market involve:


– Generative design processes that assist in designing optimized definitions of new products,
– Augmented and virtual reality technologies that are also incorporated in cooperation practices,
– Machine learning and artificial intelligence implementations that further speed up the research and study for alternative product designs.


Operating in this market BETA transformed the Simulation and Analysis world by introducing revolutionary automated software tools and practices into CAE for the Automotive Industry, from the starting days of the industry three decades ago. Today, BETA has 14 offices around the world, employs more than 500 people and services more than 3000 customer sites. Our worldwide network is supplemented by 8 independent business partners.


At BETA we believe that simulation is more than a tool to serve our disposition to understand how systems behave. Simulation has made progress on its own to become the stage for the evolution of the most sophisticated creations of man, through revolutionary products. We think that Simulation offers to human creations what evolution to nature, by fast-forwarding trials and errors, imitating the real processes, environments, and experiences.


Simulation helps us break the wall of traditional trade-off thinking. We now don’t have to sacrifice quality to save time and costs. Simulation makes sure to offer such insights on new product creations to simultaneously increase quality, reduce time while saving money and resources doing so.


Thus, at BETA CAE Systems, we concentrate our efforts in helping our customers achieve their vision for their creations. We ‘ve centered our mission on developing the right software tools to help the industry avoid the tedious tasks and concentrate on engineering, thinking, and envisioning. Our mission is to lead in achieving the industry’s vision for more simulation, more accurate results, in less time, and with reduced costs.

The company is well known for its flagship suite, which comprises ANSA pre-processor, META post-processor, KOMVOS SDM-console and EPILYSIS FEA solver. This suite, and SPDRM, the simulation-process-data-and-resources manager, are being used across a range of industries,
including the automotive, railway vehicles, aerospace, motorsports, chemical processes engineering, energy, electronics, heavy machinery, power tools, and biomechanics. The company’s product line is complemented by RETOMO, a software that transforms CT-scan images into tessellated 3D-models, NEERE, the remote working and collaboration platform that brings together everyone, anywhere at any time, and DEEN; the application, developed to be used by both CAD and Simulation engineers to review designs and simulation results directly on the 3D model.

The leading market share our products hold in the field, combined with the increase in the employment of engineering simulation, continuously increases the demand for engineers with knowledge on our software suit. For this reason, BETA also engages into partnership with engineering schools and universities around the world. Such collaborations equip students with practical knowledge and exposure to the most recent developments and software tools in the field. This both serves the industry by increasing the supply of young knowledgeable talent, and helps graduates hit the ground running in the growing simulation market.

We also do our best to support enthusiast students who create or join existing teams in global competitions on engineering. Such competitions involve formula, aerospace, electric racing and eco racing teams. Joining their side as sponsors we actively seek to offer a helping hand not only financially supporting the teams but also training their members to gain an extra edge by employing the latest technologies in engineering simulation.
As part of the engineering simulation global community, we join every year numerous events.

These events help simulation software users and academic researchers in the field communicate to the simulation community their latest accomplishments and advances. We also host our own events around the world. These events help us get closer to our partners and customers and promote a collaborative working ethic that helps us all progress in our endeavors. Featuring as a main event in the industry every two years, our international conference welcomes more than 500 guests from more than 100 well-known companies that join our conference to share their work, pass their experience, exchange their thoughts, and promote their requirements.
