Autodesk Research


Autodesk Research interacts with academic and business partners in a number of ways. We have several key academic partners that we work with directly, both faculty and students, on common projects. We also work with colleagues at corporate research groups such as Intel Research and Microsoft Research. Beyond this, we support academic research through our Research Donation Program that has lead to many impressive research outcomes around the world in diverse topics and domains.
