Bentley Systems has announced the launch of Bentley Education program that will provide full access to learning licenses of more than 40 of Bentley’s most popular applications used by infrastructure professionals worldwide. The program offers full access to learning licenses of over 40 of Bentley’s most popular applications used by infrastructure professionals around the globe, including ContextCapture, MicroStation, OpenRoads Designer, STAAD.Pro, and SYNCHRO.

The Bentley Education program uses a role-based learning approach, allowing future infrastructure professionals to focus on specific capabilities needed for specific professions. Students can go beyond mere product proficiency and develop a comprehensive understanding of the skill sets required to excel in various roles in infrastructure engineering.
Currently, the Bentley Education program is only available in the United Kingdom, Australia, Singapore, Ireland, and Lithuania, with plans to expand to the United States, Canada, Mexico, Latin America, and India by mid-summer. The students/educators or institutes from other countries can navigate to STUDENTserver to use their unique school code provided by their faculty/institute lab administrator for a complimentary software download.
The Bentley Education portal aims to bridge the gaps in classroom teaching, innovative technology, and best practices learned from real-world projects. Bentley is also asking students from all over the world to come forward with their ideas that improve quality of life and submit those for Future Infrastructure Star Challenge 2021. With infrastructure going digital, the program will help students sharpen their digital design skills and enhance their chances to grab opportunities as AEC professionals.
“With many nations and institutions committing to infrastructure and digital education initiatives as top priorities for a post-pandemic world, we are excited to launch this much-requested and responsive program now,” said Katriona Lord-Levins, Chief Success Officer, Bentley Systems. “We want to inspire and encourage students to learn about infrastructure engineering as a possible career path, and to introduce these young minds to the vast opportunities that lie ahead, with infrastructure going digital.”
Vinayak Trivedi, vice president of Bentley Education, said, “We want to make the Bentley Education portal the place where students can go to learn about and become inspired to make infrastructure engineering their career choice. The goal of the program is to help students who are passionate about infrastructure to get a jump-start on a fulfilling career. The Future Infrastructure Star Challenge 2021 provides an opportunity for them to be creative and innovative in project designs for improving the quality of life and positively changing the world.”
