Engineers Australia is delighted to announce our partnership with Autodesk. Over the last several decades, Autodesk has driven innovation in every industry – pushing the boundaries of what’s possible across architecture, engineering, construction, manufacturing, media and entertainment.
Engineers Australia Executive Manager, Membership and Growth, Jane Hanks, said “Through collaboration with organisations such as Autodesk, who are actively taking a leadership position in providing innovative solutions both globally and in Australia, we can support the engineering community and key stakeholders in the design of tomorrow’s engineering roles.”
With both a global perspective and an Australian focus, Autodesk will bring a wealth of expertise and knowledge on the importance of taking a strategic approach to the opportunities and challenges we are currently facing and those we may face in the future.
“We are thrilled to partner with Engineers Australia, a key institution that will help educate and prepare engineers for the future. This will not only help foster exciting innovations from the next generation of engineers, but also build resilience in the community during challenging times,” says Rod Hunt, Head of Industry Sales Development at Autodesk. “As the industry evolves and faces challenges like skills shortage, it will be especially crucial for our organisations to work together to ensure that we properly equip our engineering workforce.”
Autodesk consistently supports the tertiary community by providing students, educators and institutions free access to 3D design software, learning tools, programs and competitions. Earlier this year Autodesk was also recognised by Fast Company in its annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2020.
We congratulate Autodesk for becoming a National Industry Partner of Engineers Australia and look forward to working with our members and stakeholders to raise awareness and debate to bring about tangible change.
