Bentley Institute Student Ambassadors ensure productive communication between their academic institution and Bentley, working directly with Bentley’s Academic team to take better advantage of opportunities and challenges. Student Ambassadors assist their fellow students, and also educators on their campus, by acquainting them with available Bentley software and Academic benefits, with inspiring infrastructure projects around the world, and with important trends in industries that are advancing the world’s infrastructure.

Heba Ali Moustafa, a Bentley Institute Student Ambassador from Information Technology Institute (ITI) in Egypt, was appointed as an ambassador in January 2017. She introduces fellow students at ITI to the many advantages of Bentley’s STUDENTserver, like access to over 50 infrastructure software solutions, on-Demand training, completed training transcripts for potential employers, and more!

In addition, Heba has already organized two virtual training sessions for ITI students on Bentley software:

  • In January, she coordinated a virtual session that focused on AECOsim Building Designer, including its features, applications and tools. The contribution of AECOsim Building Designer in advancing BIM, and the difference between the concept of BIM and a CAD model, were also introduced so that students understand key industry trends.
  • In April, Heba organized another virtual session—this time on STAAD.Pro, which is used by engineers for structural design and analysis. The online lecture focused on the analysis of a frame structure and assigning nodal loads to it, and the difference between local and global coordinate systems.

Heba Ali says that being a Bentley Institute Student Ambassador is an amazing experience that enriches her knowledge of the link between academic learning and the various technology tools that can automate and facilitate the design, construction, and management of building projects. She notes that being a Student Ambassador also enriches her leadership and communication skills.

After her graduation, she aims to undertake a master’s degree program in Civil Engineering Informatics, investing her knowledge of both Civil Engineering and Information technology as a future developer of civil engineering software.

We wish to thank Heba Ali for her contributions to learning on her campus, and wish her luck for her future endeavors. We are gratified that being a Bentley Institute Student Ambassador helps her to achieve her goals, while also supporting her fellow students!
