"Due to the competitive nature of the design and engineering industry it is critical to differentiate yourself from your peers in any way you can. I did that by specialising in DriveWorks and SOLIDWORKS to better understand the tools used in industry, allowing me to create better designs." - Adam Green, R&D and Technology Manager

"Having knowledge of DriveWorksXpress made it easier for me to get a placement. I was then offered a graduate scheme by the same company, kicking off my career straight out of university. I'm now travelling around the world working on really exciting projects whilst some of my friends are still searching for jobs." – Tom, Graduate Engineer
