Solid Edge Educator Resources
Siemens PLM Software provides secondary school to university educators with industry-leading technology to support the teaching of product design and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) for educational programs that meet or exceed student and industry needs. Resources are developed by teachers for teachers.
For Middle School and High School Educators
Middle school and high school play an essential role in educating future engineers and product designers. It’s at this stage in their education that many students first experience the spark that ignites their passion for design and engineering.
Siemens Solid Edge High School Edition enables teachers to prepare junior and high school students for the future of engineering and product design, and experienced students can take an online examination and get certified in Solid Edge.

College and University Curriculum
Solid Edge for Engineering Students
This semester-length course teaches students how to model. Engineering concepts are presented along with Solid Edge functions and modeling techniques. Instructors lecture from PowerPoint modules, which also launch videos, in-class activities and data files. Students bring their laptops to class so that they can participate. A study guide is provided. Supplemental materials stimulate creative, artistic thinking and 3D design with additional practice in non-traditional 3D CAD modeling.
Introduction to 3D Modeling
This undergraduate semester-long curriculum includes lecture notes, classroom presentations, videos and assignments.
