Bentley Systems has opened the call for submissions for its 2011 Student Design Competition. University, college, community college, technical school, and high school students are invited to submit projects designed using Bentley software, along with a short essay describing their work. Project submissions will be judged by a panel of educational leaders and industry professionals from around the world.
The judges will focus on creativity and skill in applying design, engineering principles, and the use of Bentley technology. The competition, which is sponsored by Bentley’s Be Careers Network, welcomes individual efforts as well as team efforts comprising no more than three members. All submissions must be received by March 18, 2011. Bentley will award a $1,500 scholarship to the winner in each of the categories at the university, college, and community college level, and a $1,000 scholarship to the winner at the technical school and high school level.
“Our student design competition gives students a fun opportunity to experience some of the interesting challenges faced by architects and engineers as they go about the important work of improving the world’s infrastructure,” says Scott Lofgren, global director of Be Careers Network. “We also hope their participation encourages them to pursue rewarding careers in this field, thus helping sustain the infrastructure professions.”
