Learn How to Design Career-ready CAD, CAM, and BIM Programs at Pathways 2021


Our virtual education summit is back this summer, July 28!

The world of engineering, architecture, and manufacturing design is constantly evolving. New tools, methods — and even entire industries — are cropping up every year.

No matter if you’re teaching introductory drafting to high schoolers or advanced engineering to college students, we’ve identified the following three elements every career-ready engineering, architecture, and manufacturing program includes: project-based learning, on-the-job experience, and certification.

We can help you get there.

When you attend Pathways 2021 on July 28, you’ll learn tangible ways to enhance your curriculum and teaching methodologies to prepare your students for the road ahead.

Pathways 2021

This is the second-annual education summit presented by SolidProfessor. Last year, 500 drafting and design educators joined us from throughout the United States and Canada.

Virutal Summit Opening Keynote

Last year’s keynote speaker was Anthony Salcito, VP of Worldwide Education at Microsoft.

What will the sessions at Pathways 2021 cover?

Attendees will get to experience three different session tracks covering the following topics:

  1. Project-based Learning
  2. On-the-job Experience
  3. Certification

One of the great things about Pathways 2021 is that you can switch between all three tracks throughout the day — you don’t have to just stick to one!

Each session will be about 45 minutes with 15 minutes for Q&A. There will also be a 30-minute opening and closing keynote that we can’t wait to announce!

We’re adding new sessions every week. View all the sessions.
