Hooray! I have been anxiously awaiting this for years. Effective today, Autodesk provides FREE access to our software to students, teachers and schools around the world.
If you are an engineering school or teach CAD drafting or design classes, or a computer lab facing tight budgets, you can now get the software free without limitations. There is no catch or fine print or restrictions on use in school.
In the past we at Autodesk have provided software free to students, but not the schools but this has been slowly evolving first here in the US with the US ConnectED program with US President Obama where Autodesk committed $250 million, and now this effort and free access to Autodesk software is being rolled out worldwide for all students, teachers, and schools.
I invite everyone to help us spread the word to your families, alma mater, friends, students, schools, and educational connections. Let them know that Autodesk now provides students, teachers and schools with free access to Autodesk software: 3-year licenses of 80 titles of the exact same software that our commercial customers use.
Students, teachers and schools can download the software FREE at students.autodesk.com.
No catch, watermarks, or fine print.
Students are the future. It's the Right Thing to Do!
