About Us

Novus is Latin for new and Nexus is Latin for connection. The graphical design for our logo has us in a distinct color to underscore our core principle “us”. Us is our ecosystem of customers, clients and partners. We approach all that we do to make us successful. Us is our mission. The connected spheres in the logo symbolize connection or nexus and illustrate the abstract modeling principle applied to CAE including the important many to one capability.
