I am a recent civil engineering graduate and since I can’t seem to get a job, I have decided to teach myself engineering design software.  From what I understand, the two big players in this Arena  AutoCAD and Microstation. So, my questions to those who have previously used these programs is the following:

1.   Which of the two design packages should I focus on; and
2.   is there a way to get free licenses since I don’t have a job.

Any further advice will be much appreciated.
Thank you.

I really depends on the company that you are trying to work for.
Unfortunately, there are not set structures in place that dictate the type of software a certain industry should use. It is really up to the clients.
If I was you, I would focus on getting a overall understanding of both of them and at least have working knowledge of both packages. That will make you more versatile.
All the best.
