Studica Skills, the online center for student competition, and ENGINEERING.com, the global community for engineers, announced today a joint partnership to deliver superior worldwide student competitions. In the five years the first Studica Skills competitions, thousands of entries have been submitted by students in areas ranging from architecture, engineering, graphic design, and more. Students compete in these competitions to win prizes and earn recognition.
Now powered by ENGINEERING.com Inc., Studica Skills has improved its interface to function for both the students who compete in competitions and the teachers who use the website in their classrooms. In addition to the Studica Skills competitions posted that are open to all students, teachers can now set up private competitions for their classrooms. These competitions will be hosted and maintained on www.StudicaSkills.com with entries showcased to all visitors. Students and teachers are able to set up accounts complete with profiles, forums, and private chats to promote better collaboration for the Studica Skills competitions. The improved Studica Skills site, hosted by ENGINEERING.com, remains at www.StudicaSkills.com.
“Studica Skills allows us to maintain an important connection with our base of Autodesk and other technical software users in the engineering and CAD fields for the education market,” said Frank Nanfara, President of Studica. “The new Studica Skills site, built and hosted by ENGINEERING.com, allows teachers to collaborate with groups of students to submit entries and even to start competitions of their own.”
“Studica Skills has a strong presence among technical teachers and students,” said John Hayes, President of ENGINEERING.com. “We are delighted to welcome this group of technical users to the ENGINEERING.com member community.”
