Best way to get into CFD
 
Hi,

I studied aerospace engineering at university and did a final year project using CFD. I really enjoyed the challenge and it sparked an interest in the subject for me. I am currently working as a safety and reliability engineer, while there is a lot of work in the field, some of it quite interesting, I don't feel it is what I want to be doing. I am a big F1 fan and would love to end up in that field but believe any work with CFD would be more interesting than what I am doing now.

What is the best way to get into CFD? Do I need to do further education work? Masters, phd? or can I get training on the job? Are their training courses that would give me an appropriate qualification? How did other people get into the field?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

... and after 200 years of studying you'll find out that you are as thumb as before ;-)

Just start! Play with it.
