Why speak at AU

  • Share your knowledge

    Share what you’ve learned and help others get through challenges you’ve already overcome.

  • Position yourself as a thought leader

    Stand out in your industry—build your resume and make a name for yourself. Demonstrate how your work and expertise are defining today’s design and engineering practice.

  • Rub elbows

    Network with other experts and meet Autodesk user groups grappling with the same issues as you.

What we're looking for

We’re looking for a wide range of classes on a wide range of topics. Here are a few guidelines to point you in the right direction.

  • Interactive roundtable discussions

    If you have a unique point of view on an industry topic and want to explore it through community-driven learning, submit your class proposal as a roundtable session.

  • Inspirational and atypical content

    Do you have an unusual use for Autodesk software that you want to share with others? Have you worked on a highly visible project where Autodesk software played an important role? If so, we want to hear from you.

  • Courses for beginners to advanced users

    Autodesk University is for everyone, so we’re looking for a range of classes that support users at every level of experience and expertise.


  • Process and workflow strategies

    We love classes that demonstrate how multiple Autodesk products and suites can be used together to make design and engineering projects efficient.

  • Business management solutions

    How are you improving company workflow, collaboration, or concept-to-completion cycles? How are you managing your IP in the cloud?
