3D Scanning & Metrology Solutions for Education

Prepare students for success after graduation by exposing them to industry-standard tools and technologies in the classroom. SOLIDWORKS and the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform are leveraged by industry around the world, with over 80% of the world’s top engineering schools choosing to teach with SOLIDWORKS.


The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform offers a suite of apps and tools for schools, students and educators to collaborate seamlessly from anywhere in the world. New challenges in education has led to an evolution in teaching, and a need for schools and educators to adapt.

What’s driving this change?

Students need to be able to collaborate across geographies, from any device, whether in the classroom or learning remotely. Having a cloud-based platform allows you to operate a virtual classroom when computer-locked desktop technology is not accessible. Teachers today struggle with disconnected data, with different systems for distributing syllabus and curriculum, collecting assignments, and engaging with students or other faculty. The teachers of tomorrow want a single, streamlined, connected solution.

What is the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform for Education?

Everything you need – In one place.

With an ever-growing portfolio of apps living securely in the Cloud, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform for education offers a complete CAD teaching tool without the need for costly IT and software and hardware maintenance.
