You have a design project due in a few weeks.  How do you explain your ideas to your instructor, classmates, and be successful? SOLIDWORKS can help.  You heard about SOLIDWORKS for other students – but how do you start to learn on your own – if you have no time to take a SOLIDWORKS class.

The answer is MySolidWorks for Students!  MySolidWorks helps you learn about SOLIDWORKS on your own, so your project will stand out.  Students use SOLIDWORKS to design all sorts of projects such as: robots, vehicles, prosthetic devices, electro-mechanical assemblies, and art.

MySolidWorks for Students – provides access to over 320 product tutorial videos and the Certified SOLIDWORKS Associate (CSWA) preparation course materials, helping students gain the skills they need to work faster and smarter with SOLIDWORKS.  Also included are online storage services for sharing designs, and a worldwide network of manufacturers who can help bring designs to life.

If you are graduating this year and are looking for a job, you will want to take the Certified SOLIDWORKS Associate (CSWA) exam.  Your school can offer the CSWA exam for free to its students in a proctored setting.  Your instructor or school’s testing administrator can apply to be a SOLIDWORKS Academic Provider.  MySolidWorks contains tutorials to help you be successful and get certified.
