Bentley Student Ambassador program is an attempt to bridge the chasm between academic learning and industry by creating a global network of student ambassadors who will act as a link between Bentley Systems and their campus.

Bentley Student Ambassador is go-to person for students and educators to get acquainted with Bentley software, various infrastructure projects and industries that use Bentley software. Bentley Student Ambassador is chosen and nominated by the institution management and will be trained by Bentley, in turn to share their knowledge will fellow students from various engineering streams. They will lead on campus to arrange training and activities related to infrastructure projects that encourage the use of technology in a fun and creative way among the fellow students.


Kedar Desai is a 1st year M.Tech civil engineering student from LJ College of Engineering, Ahmedabad. He is a recent nominated Bentley Student ambassador who participated at the Bentley LEARNing Conference in Ahmedabad and supported us in recruiting students from his institution. He was pretty impressed by the knowledge he gained at the conference and took initiative to introduce the Bentley’s Academic Program to his fellow mates. After the conference, he organized a seminar introducing the students to the Bentley Academic Program, STUDENTserver access and made them download STAAD.Pro. 

The following week, he initiated a camp in his computer lab to register 40 students and train them on STAAD.Pro. The Academic Team supported his initiative by providing him learning paths and presentations to promote this learning with students. He organized the session every day in evening with 40 students to see various learning paths via STUDENTserver and educated students about STAAD.Pro usage.                                                              

Kedar Desai set a good example as an ambassador and we appreciate the efforts of Kedar and wish him good luck with his future endeavors.
