Engineers Australia is delighted to announce its 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.
With both a global perspective and an Australian focus, Engineers Australia Executive Manager, Membership and Growth, Jane Hanks, said 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.
“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,” she said.
Autodesk consistently supports the tertiary community by providing students, educators and institutions with 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.
Autodesk Head of Industry Sales Development Rod Hunt said the partnership will be mutually beneficial.
“We are thrilled to partner with Engineers Australia, a key institution that will help educate and prepare engineers for the future,” he said.
“This will not only help foster exciting innovations from the next generation of engineers, but also build resilience in the community during challenging times.
“As the industry evolves and faces challenges like skills shortages, it will be especially crucial for our organisations to work together to ensure that we properly equip our engineering workforce.”
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.
