The 3DEXPERIENCE Education community has been created to provide students and researchers with the support and knowledge needed to develop their SOLIDWORKS skills and excel in their chosen fields.

Why You Should Join the Education Community

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is widely used in the engineering and design industry, particularly in sectors such as aerospace, automotive, and manufacturing.

Here are 3 reasons why you should get ahead of the game and join the community.


Joining the community allows students to collaborate with peers and industry experts, which can simulate real-world team dynamics. As collaborative skills are highly valued in the workforce, this experience can be a significant advantage.

We’ve designed this community to provide students with the opportunity to connect with professionals and enhance their SOLIDWORKS skills and learn how to use the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

There are other publicly accessible communities that foster collaboration between designers, mentors, and potential employers. Networking can lead to internships, job opportunities, and valuable advice on career development.


The community provides access to tutorials, webinars, and educational materials that you can’t access anywhere else.

Enhance your knowledge and skills in design and engineering with these resources. It can also serve as a supplemental learning platform to your academic studies – ask questions of real industry professionals and SOLIDWORKS experts.

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is known for its innovation, and this community gives you the opportunity to experience the latest advancements in design and engineering technology, giving you a competitive edge as you progress through your studies.


By commissioning and collaborating on real projects within the community, you can build an impressive portfolio of work to showcase your SOLIDWORKS skills and abilities to potential employers. This portfolio can be a crucial asset when seeking internships or job opportunities.

The community provides another opportunity to develop your problem-solving and critical-thinking skills by addressing real-world challenges and finding creative solutions - essential skills in any design and engineering field.

The industry-recognised SOLIDWORKS certifications, and our CPD-accredited SOLIDWORKS training courses are a great way to develop your skills and qualify your abilities to potential employers.
