As part of our mission to advance STEM at all levels of education and business, we have been honored to partner with a multitude of incredible organizations in both the private and public sectors. It is virtually impossible to place a value on the benefit of these collaborative relationships. So naturally, we are excited to announce we're now working with one of the world’s leaders in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software: Autodesk.
Since 1982, Autodesk has been on the leading edge of computer-aided design (CAD) software, spearheaded by their seminal product AutoCAD. Dedicated to making design technology accessible to professional designers and casual creators alike, Autodesk is in a unique position to have a deep impact on design education and to nurture the next wave of innovators, inventors, and entrepreneurs.
Technology is changing how people design and make things, and Autodesk is creating the next generation of tools for the next generation of designers and engineers. Autodesk provides free access to its 3D design software and creativity applications to schools, educators and students around the globe. Through our platform, STEM Premier students can learn how to access and download all of Autodesk’s powerful software for their own educational endeavors.
For instance, students can access one of Autodesk’s newest products, Autodesk Fusion 360, a collaborative design application with seemingly endless possibilities.

Autodesk also coordinates events, competitions, and awesome opportunities for students to strengthen and showcase their skills. For example, Autodesk Design Academy features a growing collection of lessons, projects and courses to support students as they develop technical skills and creative confidence. By teaching students skills like 3D modeling and 3D animation using professional Autodesk products, we are giving both students and educators a real advantage, creating a generation that’s both college- and career-ready.
Autodesk believes design has the power to create a better world and is proud to develop and provide the tools to those future designers and engineers who are setting out to do just that. STEM Premier wants to transform the way students imagine and design their future.
Together, we believe we can do something special.
