uhm.. does someone know a software that you can build/create circuit(like electronic workbench) and can convert it to a design on PCB.. is that possible..

A lot of universities use PSpice
I think there is a free demo student version
PSpice is great but its real buggy and has a lot of compatibility issues between different versions of PSpice.
This is because different companies made different versions of PSpice

Multisim is also another good one. This one is made by National Instruments (makers of labview)
not sure if there is a demo version of this
I have a version installed on my laptop but i forgot where i got it. I think it was supplied by my university

Another commonly used program is Logicworks

There is no "automatic" conversion between a schematic and a PCB
you have to design a PCB from scratch
I forgot the one I used (haven't done circuit design in awhile, I focus more on Systems and Power)

Your university should provide you with some programs.
There should at least be programs installed on your university computers.
