Dassault Systèmes has unveiled SolidWorks Education Edition 2013-2014. The company says this latest version includes new functionalities to simplify complex design tasks, enable students to create models easier and faster, and provide wider connectivity to expand collaboration between users.
Teaching guides and lessons are also available to provide educators with additional support for developing the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) curriculum. In addition, qualified schools are given SolidWorks Student Edition licenses at no charge for use by their students.
Schools with a SolidWorks Education subscription can also administer the Certified SolidWorks Associate (CSWA) exam to their students. More than 6,400 students were certified in the last year alone and the recognition is considered a major asset in a job search because it effectively validates student expertise to prospective employers.
Dassault Systèmes provides an array of support tools to ensure design projects are successfully executed. Students now have access to My.SolidWorks, to help them increase their professional skill set and gain insight and expertise from the SolidWorks Community.
