India to host first Autodesk University

India: Autodesk, Inc. has announced the launch of Autodesk University (AU) in India for the first time ever. The India lap of the world’s largest learning and networking event for Autodesk technology users will be held on September 11-12, 2014 at The Renaissance, Powai, Mumbai.

Centred around the theme ‘Learn. Connect. Explore,’ the AU India will showcase the latest Autodesk technologies for Motion Capture, Reality Computing and 3D Smart Cities, among others. AU India is the latest addition to the growing list of global cities that host AU annually.

The event offers an opportunity for India’s design ecosystem to learn from some of the world's top technology experts through training and certification sessions, featuring more than 650 classes imparting advanced training on Autodesk software. The keynotes will be delivered by Autodesk Senior Vice Presidents Chris Bradshaw and Steve Blum.

Pradeep Nair, Managing Director, India and SAARC, Autodesk, said, “AU India will be much bigger and will be a dynamic forum for design and engineering professionals to learn from international experts, network with peers and explore the latest design technologies. The Autodesk Certification opportunity at AU also helps advance skills in design and innovation. This is really important in the current environment where skilling youth – with an emphasis on employability and entrepreneurship – is a key government priority.
