Students showed a strong presence at Autodesk University (AU) Africa 2017 which took place in Cape Town on 8th September 2017. The preparations started weeks before AU, as we held a series of Fusion 360 designathons with Autdesk academic partner BIMGAMES at universities and colleges in the Cape Town province, to identify the best student teams to invite to the main event. The day before AU, a final DesignNow was held at the venue with the participation of twenty-four design and engineering students from four post-secondary institutions.
The Autodesk Education stand at AU featured a DesignNow Challenge wall and a voting station where visitors had a chance to vote for their favorite entries on an iPad. The stand also included a large interactive display to showcase selected student projects from the Middle East and Africa region.
The closing session of AU Africa 2017 ended with the prize ceremony as students received their prizes from HP.
