Bentley Institute Student Ambassadors are the go-to person on their school’s campus, helping their peers and educators to get acquainted with Bentley’s software, with inspiring infrastructure projects, and with trends in industries that are advancing the world’s infrastructure.

The ambassadors proactively lead activities on their campuses that support learning and help their fellow students to use software in exciting and innovative ways. This network helps students around the world exchange ideas about leveraging technology, and expands their skills to effectively prepare for careers in infrastructure industries.

This month we recognize Shrenik Bora, a Bentley Institute Student Ambassador studying at Maharashtra Institute of Technology, Pune, India. Shrenik is a student of Structural Engineering in this final year who truly defines the essence of a Bentley Student Ambassador. Since his appointment as a Student Ambassador in December 2015, he has become a leader that actively hosts sessions to spread awareness about the resources available to his fellow students.

Shrenik helped the faculty of his institute and Bentley to organize an introductory session on Bentley’s STUDENTserver at his campus, to acquaint students with how they can access software and take online training. The event was attended by nearly 150 students in their third and fourth year at the institute.

Two months later, Shrenik conducted a session for 50 students in their second year, to likewise orient them about the resources available to them through STUDENTserver, followed by a live demonstration for Masters of Engineering students on STAAD.Pro.

Shrenik used STAAD.Pro to design a G+2 commercial building by himself and shared it with his peers to educate them on the use and benefits of structural design and analysis software. He also created a 3D model of a statue, using ContextCapture, to help his peers see how quickly simple photos can be converted into a reality model.

Shrenik wants every student in his institute to explore a range of software and helps them to learn and expand their skills. He encourages his peers to understand the importance of software in the construction and design industry and prepare themselves for their careers.

Shrenik is a model Ambassador and has actively contributed throughout his tenure to advance the infrastructure professionals of the future. We would like to thank him for his contribution in educating his fellow students and advancing their preparation for the job market. We wish him the best for all the future activities that he plans as a Student Ambassador!
