On the Job
World leader in 2D and 3D design technology
Autodesk provides students with tools and resources to explore their design ideas, and helps them prepare for exciting careers in architecture, engineering, and the digital arts.
The Autodesk Education Community is an online destination that provides students with free* software downloads and resources that connect students with their peers and the industry — including training materials, product tips, step-by-step tutorials, a student design gallery, videos, career profiles and more!
As a world leader in 2D and 3D design, engineering, and entertainment software, Autodesk delivers the broadest product portfolio, helping over 9 million customers, including every member of the Fortune 100, to continually innovate through the digital design, visualization, and simulation of real-world project performance. From architecture, manufacturing, transportation, and utilities to telecommunications, video games, television, and film, Autodesk customers are leading the 2D and 3D design world by improving their design processes through increased efficiency and productivity. In fact, the last 14 Academy Award® winners for Best Visual Effects used Autodesk® software. By enhancing collaboration and communication and digitally improving the real-world performance of projects before they are built, Autodesk customers are solving their business challenges, avoiding costly rework, accelerating project cycles and time to market, and ultimately gaining competitive advantage.
Autodesk technology enables designers and engineers to experience their ideas before they are real. And, the same tools that customers use to design, visualize, and simulate their projects can also better enable sustainable design through new practices like Building Information Modeling (BIM) that helps architects to create more efficient uses of energy, water, materials, and land in a final building design; and Digital Prototyping (DP) tools which enable designers to optimize their designs before they are built, reducing the need for physical prototypes and optimizing energy and materials use. Autodesk software helps make sustainable design practices easier, more efficient, and less costly.
