Texas A&M Engineering College Implements 500 seats of SolidWorks(August 27, 2001)
"With other 3D CAD software, we spent a large part of each semester teaching students to master the tool instead of actual 3D model design," said Professor Steve Suh, a university CAD design instructor. "The learning curve with SolidWorks is much shorter. While it typically took students up to nine weeks to develop all necessary CAD skills required for fully executing their design projects using other 3D CAD technology, SolidWorks lets them begin mastering design in half the time."
Texas A&M's mechanical engineering faculty also teaches several SolidWorks' partner products to further enhance the students' 3D CAD skills. Students can use Structural Research & Analysis Corporation's COSMOS/Works to conduct structural analyses, and ALGOR's Mechanical Event Simulation software allows them to explore how parts will operate together in an assembly.
