BIM Solution for Educational Institutions

Make your students focus on the essence of structural engineering instead of manual drawing.

The transition from education to work is often both a challenge and a prospect for a young graduate. To ease this step, Tekla offers all educational institutions the affordable educational license program. The program provides students with a firm foundation to learn and train on Tekla Structures Building Information Modeling (BIM) software.

The construction industry is increasingly using 3D modeling tools, and Tekla’s educational software license helps to teach students the value of a constructable 3D building information model. With Tekla Structures, students can carry out each stage of a design project from conceptual design all the way through to erection and construction planning. Students realize the importance of collaboration and the benefits of sharing project data right from the beginning.
