PENNSYLVANIA, October 26, 2021

Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the infrastructure engineering software company, today (October 26) announced the global expansion of its education programme – offering seamless access to learning licences of over 60 popular Bentley applications, at no cost - to all eligible students and educators, from middle schools through higher education levels, via the Bentley Education portal. 
This comes as part of Bentley Systems' commitment to expand access to its professional applications to education.
Following on the initial May 3 announcement of the launch of Bentley Education in the pilot countries of Australia, the UK, Singapore, Lithuania, and Ireland, the program is gaining a resounding response, with more than 500,000 students and educators across many countries visiting the Bentley Education portal, said the statement from Bentley Systems. 
Now, with global expansion, the Bentley Education programme is accessible to all students and educators at middle schools, high schools, community colleges, polytechnics, institutes, and universities across the world to employ Bentley applications in their classrooms, labs, and at home, it stated.
Vinayak Trivedi, the Vice President of Bentley Education, said: "With the global focus on infrastructure advancement for resilience and adaptation, there will be unprecedented demand for talented individuals who have the skills and ability to come on board prepared to work on the next level of projects and digital workflows. By providing students, educators, and universities around the world with appropriate software and resources to become ready for this opportunity, we are complementing the education system to attract and develop the talent required."
With a blend of learning content created for students, the Bentley Education portal provides access to comprehensive training resources and project-based learning content that is maintained in collaboration with major universities and industry partners, he stated. 
By registering on the Bentley Education portal to access learning license entitlements, students and educators also gain access to bonus resources such as insights from industry professionals, firsthand perspectives of current students, and updates on the latest and current industry trends – all at their own pace, in a fun learning environment. 
Katriona Lord-Levins, chief success officer at Bentley Systems, said: "Students today prefer the opportunity to learn at their own pace and explore what inspires them."
"The Bentley Education programme provides just that – a community of students, educators, and practicing infrastructure professionals to help students to discover what’s possible and to kick-start potential rewarding careers in advancing infrastructure through going digital," added Levins.-TradeArabia News Service
