3DEXPERIENCE World 2024 an Event for Educators and Students Too

On February 11-14, 2024, SOLIDWORKS is hosting 3DEXPERIENCE World, at Dallas, Texas, USA. We have some great things planned for our education community!

3DEXPERIENCE World will bring together thousands of designers, engineers, manufacturers, educators and students united by the desire to collaborate, explore, and push the limits of how design can impact the future and how you work and learn today.

General Sessions

During our General Sessions, you will hear from customers, notable industry experts, and Dassault Systèmes executives as they discuss new technologies and strategies can power innovation, growth and prosperity for SOLIDWORKS users, educators, students, and entrepreneurs alike—now and into the future.


MeetUp Sessions

Prior attendees have told us that the greatest value of attending 3DEXPERIENCE World is the endless networking opportunities for educators and students to connect with like-minded people. There is no better place to gain new skills, play with new technology, hear new ideas, and connect with fellow community members to ignite your passion.


Technical training at 3DEXPERIENCE World is held in both lecture-style breakouts as well as panel discussions. The breakout sessions give attendees classroom-style learning on various topics, taught by industry and education experts.

Hear from Educators at all levels that use SOLIDWORKS in and out of their classrooms.  Understand how educators have introduced 3DEXPERIENCE platform apps in their classroom.  Learn about student success with our industry-standard SOLIDWORKS academic certification provider program.

If you want to know about a new SOLIDWORKS product, attend the beginner session and quickly get up to speed. For more advanced users, head to the expert sessions and learn all of the productivity tips from fellow users that will take your skills to the next level.

The knowledge you learn during these sessions can be used immediately when you return to school, helping you to accelerate your design process and skills. With over 200 technical sessions available, you will find multiple topics of interest. Even better, this year, we’re offering some career sessions and opportunities specifically for students.


We’re thrilled to announce that 3DEXPERIENCE World 2024 is back IN PERSON! One of our highest priorities at SOLIDWORKS is to help students build the career of their dreams. With that goal in mind, we invite ALL students to attend the highly-anticipated event for FREE, where you can unleash their full potential and ignite their future to pave the way to success. Don’t miss out on this transformative experience!
