For Educators

Educators tell us that sustainability is critically important, but it's often missing in design and engineering curricula. With the Autodesk Sustainability Workshop, educators can incorporate free materials into a broad range of courses. We make it easy to fold sustainability into existing curriculum, and provide students with self-learning tools for extracurricular projects and design competitions.

Why is sustainability important to Design and Engineering Education?

  • Industries and jobs are changing dramatically.  At the same time, our demand for resources has put unprecedented pressure on our planet.  
  • More than ever, knowing how to radically improve our use of energy and natural resources is critical to today’s engineers and designers as they enter the workforce.  
  • All industries are demanding new skills to measure and analyse environmental impact.
  • There is an immediate opportunity to apply sustainability across technical and creative fields.


How can this Site Help You and Your Students?

Read more about our approach, which includes tips for integrating sustainability into the classroom.
Our teaching materials introduce sustainability within engineering, design, and architecture. 
We begin with a simplified introduction to sustainability concepts both within buildings and product design, such as lifecycle thinking and net zero energy building.  
As we introduce each of these basic concepts, we set the stage for diving into more technical materials we have available, like tutorials for architectural and mechanical design software.  

To see how other educators have benefited from the materials available on this site, check out our testimonials page.


What Sustainability Topics are Relevant to Your Coursework?

Our Curriculum Mapping guide will show you what materials are most appropriate for specific courses in mechanical engineering, industrial design and architecture. 



We have also got a catalogue of sustainable design courses which can be integrated into your curriculum. Our flagship Autodesk Building Performance Analysis Course Program details can be found on our BPA course page.
