Infrastructure Student Design Competition

The Bentley Student Design Competition promotes the exploration and application of Bentley software, in pursuit of skills needed to be "job ready" as a future infrastructure professional.

The resulting awards recognize innovative and technically advanced projects created by university, technical college, and high school students from around the globe.
