We are happy to announce Bentley Institute’s association with American Institute of Steel Construction - AISC as the sponsor for 2019 Student Steel Bridge Competition. This year marks the 11th year of our partnership with AISC as we jointly envision of empowering future professionals with the digital skills required to contribute to the structural design community and construction industry.
As such, we are pleased to offer all the steel bridge teams with free software along with the required learning material and support.
Offerings for participating teams:
Free software (STAAD.Pro CONNECT Edition) for the duration of the 2019 competition.
We will soon contact your Faculty Advisor with more information on how to download the software.
In case, if you fail to hear from your faculty advisor within the next few weeks, then participating teams can reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Of course, if your school has Bentley’s Academic SELECT Subscription, then your student team already has access to this software (and a far more!), via STUDENTserver. You can use your normal login for STUDENTserver to access both the software.
Support via learning videos available, to help teams use STAAD.Pro CONNECT Edition to design, and then analyze, their steel bridge.
