Louisville-based Autodesk reseller gifts institution with Autodesk Inventor Professional
"Inventor adds the power of 3D to my students' existing AutoCAD supported 2D design process, allowing students the advanced ability to simulate the movement and interaction of 3D components," says Dr. John S. Usher, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Industrial Engineering at the University of Louisville. "Students are able to design a product or even a large system, and then see it in motion and interact with it to determine if it works as they had envisioned. This allows students to design more innovative products and systems."
The University of Louisville is the alma mater of Advanced Solutions President and CEO Michael Golway, who holds a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Sciences and a Master of Engineering in Industrial Design from the university. "The University of Louisville was a wonderful place to learn engineering design, and I owe a lot to the education I received as an undergraduate and graduate student," says Golway, who is a recipient of the University of Louisville's Research Achievement Award and serves on the alumni board of the Engineering Graduate School. "With this gift, I am able to give the gift of these professional design tools to the faculty and students and further advance learning."
"Autodesk is committed to excellence in education and excited that students at the University of Louisville will have the opportunity to enhance their skills with the professional design tools used in the industry," says Paul Mailhot, senior director of worldwide education programs at Autodesk. "We're proud of the impact Autodesk's participation, and the participation of our resellers, can make on the next generation of innovators that will help the United States remain competitive in our global economy."
Autodesk Inventor is the world's foremost 3D mechanical design software and is taught at esteemed university and college campuses around the globe, such as South China University of Technology (SCUT) and UCLA. The easy-to-learn software helps students build, apply and test their design skills and eventually enter the workforce with a competitive advantage. In its ongoing commitment to serve the next generation of engineers, Autodesk launched the Student Engineering and Design Community, a Web portal that allows students to download software, such as Inventor, for free*, as well as participate in online tutorials, network with peers and educators from around the globe and even search for jobs or internships.
