3D design software  firm Autodesk today announced the launch of its newest educational initiative – Design the Future. This new program will grant all secondary schools in California free access to some of Autodesk’s latest design software as well as supporting curricula, training and certification programs.

Design the Future program offers:

  • Autodesk Entertainment Creation Suite Ultimate
    • For teaching 3D modeling, digital sculpting, texture painting, animation, effects and rendering - offers access to Autodesk Maya, SketchBook, 3ds Max and more.
  • Autodesk Design Academy
    • Offers a set of design, visualization, and simulation capabilities that allow students to move between 2D and 3D design environments; classrooms will have access to software such as AutoCAD Architecture, Inventor and Vault.

Both offerings are supported by the Autodesk Digital STEAM Workshop, which features online learning content that offers educators a new way of teaching technology. In addition to this free curriculum, California secondary educators will also receive free eTraining, practice tests and certification from Certiport, Autodesk’s exclusive provider of the Autodesk Certified User program.
