Dean Jones, Vice President for Modeling and Simulation Solutions at Hyperion, said: “We offer value to our customers by providing operator training simulators and dynamic studies. As the leading independent modeling solutions provider, we need well versed engineers who understand process modeling and who can grasp the idiosyncrasies of modern process simulation software. Software alone is not sufficient to deliver full-scope solutions; we need good people to drive it and understand the obtained results. This is why we value the chance to cooperate with the Pune University and why we will continue to do so.”
