For the new MicroStation user, this hands-on course builds a solid foundation on the concepts of MicroStation  and the use of its tools and features for creating and editing 2D designs.

Interspersed throughout are real-world design problems solved using the concepts learned up to that point in the course. Various engineering disciplines are represented in the form of hands-on exercises.
