What to Expect at Autodesk University 2017


The most wonderful time of the year is almost here once again! No, not winter, Autodesk University is fast approaching and within two weeks more than 10,000 engineers will converge into Las Vegas for an event of a lifetime.

For those of you that haven’t been to AU yet, it’s not too late to sign up. For those of you that have gone, then you know that AU is practically heaven for engineers. AU 2017 is poised to be the best Autodesk University ever with all your favorite events like morning coffee, the classes and labs,  and of course, the famous party on Wednesday night.

Some of the most exciting things happening this year that you won’t want to miss are the Opening Keynote with Autodesk’s new CEO, Andrew Anagnost, the Product Innovation Forum – where you’ll be able to build, design, and take home a functional speaker, and the Design & Manufacturing keynote on Thursday. These 3 events are enough to make your trip worth it in my opinion, but you can pack your schedule with as many events as you’d like and have even more fun.

While AU is for everyone, let’s focus in on what to expect at AU if you’re a mechanical engineer, product designer, or even just someone interested in learning about Inventor. If you’re struggling to sort through the list of classes available at AU, here are some Inventor Specific classes that you may find interest in.
