SOLIDWORKS World 2018 – Student Success In and Out of the Classroom

SOLIDWORKS World celebrates our community of Educators, Students, Makers, and Researchers.  In and out of the classroom, SOLIDWORKS is preparing skilled students to get the best jobs.

We couldn’t achieve this success without the help of educators from university, college, community college, and high school present at key break out sessions.  Every presenter on the SOLIDWORKS Education Track is focused on student success.  They are all SOLIDWORKS Academic Certification Providers.
