Autodesk produces a suite of 3D design, engineering, and entertainment software. Autodesk suites are used across many industries, including manufacturing, architecture, and entertainment.
Through the Autodesk Education Community, students, faculty, and academic departments can use the Autodesk commercial-grade products for education and teaching purposes at no charge. Users can create simulated 3D models to help with real world construction, architectural models, and 3D animation or simulations for games, film or TV.
Academic departments and labs should create their own account. Departments that prefer to use a network license should contact the IT Service Desk to request the creation of a network license for any Autodesk suite or standalone piece of software. For questions or assistance, please contact Autodesk Support.
Autodesk makes its software available at no cost to students and educators, including academic departments.
This software is licensed for use on both personal and University-owned machines and devices.
The University does not have a licensing agreement with Autodesk. However, Autodesk makes most of its software available to students and educators free of charge for non-commercial projects. See the bottom of their free software page for the basic details, and get the full terms on their legal page.
Autodesk makes the most current versions of their software available through this program. Many programs are available on both PC and Mac.
