Software Learning Manuals

The Bentley Academic Program provides engineering design textbooks that can serve as classroom materials, teaching aids, or reference books that:

  • Challenge your students with dozens of pre-developed assignments that involve real-world systems too complex to analyze without the use of software (professor solution manual available)
  • Place your students far above the rest in their job searches by exposing them to the same software that is in use at client sites worldwide
  • Work as primary texts for advanced courses or supplement existing water resources courses with a new practical component

Want these learning manuals in your class?  Please contact us at for more details.

Hardcopy Books

Far beyond being how-to guides for using engineering design software, many of these texts teach the subtleties of modeling and design in the engineering and architectural fields. We provide practical guidance based on the experiences of veteran modelers.
