IIT, Kanpur selects Bentley programme
New Delhi, May 11 (UNI) The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur, has selected the BE (Bentley Empowered) Careers Network programme for upgrading software skills of engineering students in the field of infrastructure and help them graduate with market-ready technology skills, Bentley Systems Incorporated announced here today.
The programme will support IIT Kanpur's efforts to provide its students with the software skills in infrastructure, including architecture, engineering, construction and operations.
''Its adoption will give the students practical, hands-on training in the latest commercial computer-aided design and engineering software encompassing the entire lifecyle of building, plant, civil and geospatial projects,'' said Bhupinder Singh, Managing Director, Bentley South Asia.
By providing students with the same Bentley solutions used by infrastructure professionals, the BE Careers Network programme would increases their chances of joining some of the pre-eminent organisations in the world, he said.
In addition, through tailored, flexible programmes for students, teachers and schools, combined with free and discounted software, training, curriculum counselling, and award programmes, BE Careers Network enables colleges and universities to cost-effectively incorporate architecture, engineering and construction technology into their curricula.
"The BE Careers Network programme underscores Bentley's commitment to the community of educators that has the critically important responsibility of training today's architecture and engineering students, whose assignment will be improving the world's infrastructure.
''I say critically important because the infrastructure improvements these future architects and engineers bring to this region will translate into a greater competitive edge in world markets for South Asia's many growing enterprises." Under the programme, students and faculty are eligible for more than 40 products for building, civil, plant and geospatial design and engineering applications on an annual subscription basis.
To date, roughly 900 schools around the world have obtained Academic Subscriptions through the programme.
With 2005 revenues of 336 million dollars and more than 2,000 colleagues around the world, Bentley is the leading provider of architecture, engineering and civil (AEC) software to the einstitutes and major owner-operators.
