AU is organized around the idea that getting better at our jobs demands support, collaboration, and knowledge sharing at every turn. And most AU classes are designed and led by industry professionals for industry professionals.
Collaboration across design and engineering domains is increasingly important. At AU, you’ll find classes that demonstrate how diverse professionals use a range of skills and tools to foster efficiency, innovation, and more—whether that’s digital design to construction, end-to-end manufacturing, simulation and design analysis, animation and visualization across industries, and so much more.
AU’s community of experts share more than innovative design and engineering solutions. Many have management and leadership perspectives that can inform and improve business practices. Popular topics explore the adoption and implementation of new technologies, concept-to-completion cycles, and information management in today’s cloud computing and additive manufacturing environments.
Many members of the AU community have extensive experience with Autodesk products and are looking for in-depth classes that teach new and efficient ways to use those products. Others are just starting out or adopting new Autodesk products into their design and engineering workflows. AU supports people at every stage.
This year, you can review the anonymous submissions of the AU community during the Call for Proposals (April 19-May 17). Get inspired to submit your own proposal or simply keep an eye on what matters most to you. When the CFP window closes, weigh in on the classes that can't be missed. Your feedback is an important factor in selecting this year’s classes.
