How to get free Autodesk software
Autodesk has announced that AutoCAD software will be available for free to members of the worldwide Student Engineering and Design Community. The Student Community was created three years ago to help architecture, engineering and digital entertainment students gain access to educational resources and technical expertise. The Student Community now has more than 570,000 members representing more than 19,000 schools in 139 countries.
“We created the Student Community three years ago to help architecture, engineering and digital entertainment students gain the educational resources and technical expertise they need to be successful in their future careers,” said Joe Astroth, Ph.D., Autodesk vice president of Learning and Education.
“The demand for AutoCAD skills spans many industries. By expanding our offerings to include AutoCAD, students now have easy access to software and resources to help them build those vital skills needed in today’s competitive marketplace.”
The addition of AutoCAD to the Student Community allows students to take full advantage of these new design tools, while adding to the portfolio of products they can use to develop skills in key industry concepts such as Digital Prototyping, building information modeling (BIM) and sustainable design.
With the addition of AutoCAD, the Student Community now offers more than two dozen free software products.
