SolidWorks Design Contest Winners Raise the Bar on Student Work

CONCORD, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—March 10, 2008— SolidWorks Corporation today announced the winners of its second annual Student Design Contest, saying the winning student designs nearly matched the quality of professional engineers' entries.

Judged in parallel with the SolidWorks World 2008 Design Contest, the student contest spotlights future designers and engineers from middle school through graduate school using SolidWorks(R) software. "It's important to recognize the work of students who are just starting out in their computer-aided design and engineering work," said Marie Planchard, director of worldwide education markets for SolidWorks Corporation. "Yet it's evident from the work they submitted that their designs stand up to the best of the professional design contest."

This year's student winners are:

1st prize - Matsuo Nezawa, Tokyo Metropolitan Rokugou Technical High School - Strawberry, Cacti, and Fruits.

2nd prize - Lukasz Korenkiewicz, Bialystok Technical University - Adrian RC Helicopter.

3rd prize - Donald Erich, Clemson Engineering Technologies Laboratory - Multi-Unit Residence.

"I'm thrilled to win second prize," said winner Lukasz Korenkiewicz of the Bialystok Technical University in Poland. "It validates my rapidly developing design and engineering skills, which have improved steadily since I started using SolidWorks last year. The software has been easy to learn yet is packed with capabilities for helping me realize any product I can imagine."

Students earned cash prizes for their efforts. To see all the entries, visit
