Autodesk University Extension Dubai showcases new technologies
Autodesk held its fourth edition of Autodesk University Extension Dubai (AUx) at the Dubai World Trade Centre on 16 December 2015.
During the event the company presented a number of advances toward the future of making things and new technologies that would help attendees navigate and thrive in this shifting landscape.
Under the theme, ‘Insight, Innovation, Inspiration’, more than 800 of the region’s top design and engineering professionals came together for a hands-on experience exploring advanced technologies.
Louay Dahmash, head of Autodesk Middle East, said: “Technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), augmented and virtual reality and robotics will change the way engineers and designers work. Places and things are more connected, intelligent and dynamic than ever before. Our event is timely and strategic as there are countless ambitious and futuristic projects underway across the Middle East.”
This year’s event highlighted design and how it helps shape the world. A key attraction was the ‘Autodesk Gallery,’ that showcased exhibits, including Airbus’ 3D printed concept plane and Soccket — the energy-harnessing soccer ball.
AUx Dubai 2015 also served as a forum for design and engineering professionals to upgrade and validate their skills by obtaining Autodesk Certifications at the event, as well as connecting with peers and experts.
