As SolidWorks expands across India, more and more students are learning SolidWorks skills thanks to educators that open their classrooms.

150 engineering students from IIT Kharagpur participated in a SolidWorks Workshop.  Students demonstrated energy, enthusiasm, and skill in this interactive event.

My colleague, Gurpreet Singh, Territory Technical Manager for SolidWorks, instructed students on how to create parts, assemblies, drawings, and to simulate models in real world conditions.

The students tested what they learned in a timed Model Mania skills competition.  Winners received a copy of the SolidWorks Student Edition.

I was happy to see young women engineering students learning SolidWorks too.

All the students were given a Certified SolidWorks Certification Exam voucher.  With more practice, the students will be able to take the CSWA exam and obtain the credential to help get the best jobs. Customers like DEMECH Esscano Power and Essae-Teraoka demand highly skilled engineers that have SolidWorks skills.

Thank you SolidWorks Team India for giving so many engineering students a great opportunity for their future.  Marie
