At COMSOL, we develop mathematical modeling software that drives new breakthroughs in physics and engineering — and we love what we do. Our flagship product, COMSOL Multiphysics®, is used in all fields of engineering, manufacturing, and scientific research for modeling multiphysics systems. Our customers use the software to understand, predict, innovate, and optimize product designs and processes.
We also help our users take simulation one large step further, giving them the tools to create their own simulation apps, based on their models, and then distribute them to collaborators within or outside of the simulation sphere.
Company Mission and Vision
COMSOL's mission is to provide easy-to-use software solutions to engineering problems and to help our users get the most out of our products. Our mission guides us in everything we do.
One of our requirements when developing software is that all add-on products in the product suite work together seamlessly without changing the user interface or modeling workflow. This makes our software intuitive to use and lets the user follow a consistent modeling workflow regardless of the physics they are modeling. Similarly, the Application Builder within COMSOL Multiphysics® includes drag-and-drop functionality so that anyone can build simulation apps as well as Java programming for those looking to add complex functionality.
To help our users get the most out of our products, we provide technical support, training, as well as numerous self-serve learning resources on our website.
