The New Tekla Campus Invites Students to Join BIM with Free Software

At Tekla, we think that knowing Building Information Modeling (BIM) is highly important for engineering and construction students, so we now give them an opportunity to learn it with our software. We are opening Tekla Campus, an online academy for students for learning Tekla’s BIM tools.

Tekla offers students an opportunity to download Tekla Structures Learning edition, a free student license of the BIM software. The students can use the fully functional software for self-learning, school projects and course work. In addition to the software, Tekla Campus offers learning material, video tutorials, and a discussion forum for peer support and sharing thoughts.

When a student enters today’s tough job market, the skills learned on Tekla Campus may prove very valuable.

“Students who know BIM can get better jobs, and are more proficient with the tools that industry uses now and in the future. I would learn BIM if I were a student today,” says Michael Evans, Director of Engineering & Key Accounts at Tekla.
The students who start Building Information Modeling can participate to the student competition in Tekla Global BIM Awards this autumn. Why not start learning by doing?
