Aalto UniversityesaThe development work of ESAComp was initiated by the European Space Agency (ESA/ESTEC), who envisioned open software which would combine all necessary composites analysis and design capabilities under one unified user interface. The development was first conducted at Helsinki University of Technology (now Aalto University). The first official version, ESAComp 1.0, was released in 1998. In 2000, Componeering Inc. was established to overtake the ESAComp project. Altair acquired Componeering in 2017 and ESAComp became part of Altair's HyperWorks Suite.

Although it originated in the aerospace field, ESAComp has been developed as a general tool for people dealing with composites, both in industry and in research.
