Happy Thanksgiving from the SOLIDWORKS Education & Research Team

Thanksgiving Table

On behalf of the SOLIDWORKS Education and Research team, I want to wish all our customers, students and instructors a Happy Thanksgiving  – a holiday celebrated in the US.

The image above was created by two WPI students in 2012, Ian Jutras and Dave Knight.  Ian has gone on to receive his Masters degree from WPI in Fire Protection and achieved CSWE.  Ian works as a design engineer for a SOLIDWORKS customer.  Dave received his BS in mechanical engineering from WPI, achieved CSWP, now works as a mechanical engineer for a SOLIDWORKS customer.

I am thankful for all of our SOLIDWORKS customers, user group leaders, resellers and partners that share amazing stories about using SOLIDWORKS.  You provide our emotional paycheck.

I am also thankful for my colleagues, especially the SOLIDWORKS Education and Research team and Community team that make coming to work every day fun and exciting.

But most of all, I am thankful for my family that have supported me in all my endeavors.  Enjoy time with your friends and family.   Marie
