The software training session helped me to practically apply the theoretical knowledge learned at university.

To plan, and design real-world civil engineering projects. Currently, the most widely used civil engineering software in Australia is 12d.

Ravindu Chandrasekara

Civil Engineering student at Monash University

I’m really glad I took the course.

I found that training to be really useful. I learnt lots of little tips and tricks, even though I’ve been using 12d for about 7 years. The design stuff was great. Easy to follow and very clear.
