Granta Design - the materials information technology experts.
Granta is the leader in materials information technology – software, information resources, and services to advance materials education, and to enable better, greener, safer products. Granta Design is a subsidiary of ANSYS Inc.
We apply information technology to the world of materials. We help materials educators to teach the next generation of engineers, scientists, and designers, and materials engineers to optimize the performance of materials and processes. And we enable design and development to make smart decisions about their products. To date, we’ve helped hundreds of engineering enterprises to embrace ‘material intelligence’. The results: accessible data, time savings, slashed costs, reduced risk, better products, and happy engineers.
We see an exciting future for materials information technology. In education, we will help to build society’s material intelligence. In materials R&D, we seek to empower ‘Materials 4.0’ – the materials response to the Industry 4.0 era. We’ll help to drive technologies such as Additive Manufacturing and new approaches to combine simulation and experiment for materials design. And we’re working towards a world where material intelligence is available wherever it is needed, whenever it is needed in the product lifecycle – and fully integrated into business and engineering processes.
Still headquartered in Cambridge, UK, we’re now a worldwide organization with locations in the US, Germany, and France, and service partners throughout the Asia/Pacific region and elsewhere.
We’re the largest team and R&D effort dedicated to the topic of materials information technology, with unrivalled experience of implementing materials information solutions, from hundreds of industry projects and work with over a thousand universities.
Collaboration is at the heart of what we do, with an active collaborative R&D team, thriving industry consortia projects, and our involvement in coordinating the global Materials Education Symposia.
