Bentley Systems recently announced that BE Careers Network has expanded its offer of free MicroStation PowerDraft CAD software to all students and instructors to include versions in the following nine languages: simplified Chinese, traditional Chinese, Czech, English, French, German, Italian, Korean, and Spanish. MicroStation PowerDraft is a professional-level application used for production 2D/3D drafting and detailing in architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC). It features an easy-to-use graphical user interface, intuitive viewing techniques, and an innovative set of industry-recognized tools for production work. The downloads include the MicroStation PowerDraft application, an 18-week curriculum for teachers, and a student guide that can be reproduced at no cost to the school. The mission of the new BE Careers Network is to help increase the number of students entering the architectural, engineering, and construction fields, and to link graduates with employment opportunities in Bentley user organizations. BE Careers Network helps students become familiar with computer-aided design software, and enables colleges and universities to cost-effectively incorporate AEC technology into their curricula.
