New Software and Curriculum Provides Next Generation of Design Leaders with a Career Advantage

WALTHAM, Mass., USA, May 9, 2012 – – Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DExperience Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today unveiled SolidWorks® Education Edition 2012-2013. New enhancements include tools for mechanical design, simulation, sustainable design, and cost tracking, enabling students to experience real-life engineering situations, and to compete more effectively in today’s global workplace.

 

In addition to offering software that empowers educators to more easily train their students for their dream jobs, Dassault Systèmes provides a comprehensive SolidWorks curriculum library with more than 20 hands-on projects for students at every level and experience. Designing and building bridges, cars, and trebuchets helps make science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fun. The latest version of the product also integrates Facebook access within SolidWorks, making it easier to collaborate. Students can now post projects on their personal pages to share with friends, or post to the SolidWorks Facebook page to share with the larger SolidWorks community.

 

“For students interested in the field of design and engineering, SolidWorks is a must-have tool to open up doors from the classroom to the workplace,” said Emma Katharine Singer, a mechanical engineering student from the University of Colorado, Boulder. “SolidWorks is easy-to-use and quick to learn, providing students with a leg up when it comes to the real world. I am confident that my Certified SolidWorks Associate (CSWA) status will give me a clear advantage in the job market, and I hope the same for others students looking to advance in the industry.”

 

Sustainable design is also a focus of this year’s enhancements. The updated CAD Instructor’s Guide includes a chapter on sustainable design to help students analyze the future environmental impact of their designs. Qualified schools with a SolidWorks Education Edition subscription can now administer the Certified Sustainable Design Associate (CSDA) exam, in addition to the Certified SolidWorks Associate (CSWA) exam to its students. The new exam tests the fundamentals of lifecycle assessment and provides an introduction into the environmental impact of products. SolidWorks Certifications are considered a major asset in a job search because they effectively validate student expertise to prospective employers.

 

“More than 24,000 secondary schools and universities worldwide have inspired and effectively equipped the next generation of design leaders to solve the world’s most pressing design problems with the SolidWorks Education Edition,” said Bertrand Sicot, CEO, SolidWorks, Dassault Systèmes. “The latest version of the software and updated curriculum helps us to provide our customers with highly trained employees who can immediately add value in collaborating on design issues, across time zones and different cultures.”

 

“This new SolidWorks Education Edition is part of a more comprehensive 3DExperience Platform Education program that we run each year to enhance the learning and understanding of students and users everywhere in the world,” said Monica Menghini, Executive Vice President Industry, Marketing and Corporate Communication at Dassault Systèmes. “The applications of our 3DExperience Platforms are more and more of an indispensable tool for the academic world.”
