Autodesk Middle East has signed an agreement with the Abu Dhabi Vocational Education and Training Institute (ADVETI), to provide students with training in the latest 3D design technologies.

Under the Memorandum of Understanding, Autodesk will work with ADVETI and the Secondary Technical School (STS), a technical high school which is part of ADVETI, to develop curricula and tools for technical education.

Autodesk will provide access to the Autodesk Academic Resource Center which currently offers Autodesk's professional 3D design software and creativity applications for use in all ADVETI classrooms, workshops and labs at no charge.

The parties will work together on curriculum development to develop discipline-specific curricula and courseware to enhance students' knowledge and application of advance industry concepts and workflows including Building Information Modeling (BIM), Digital Prototyping, and Digital Entertainment Creation.

The MOU will also cover development of project-based workshops using Autodesk applications, and professional development programs for Autodesk certifications.

"Today's students are tomorrow's creative leaders who will shape the future of our economy. By imparting industry-relevant knowledge and 3D design skills to the future workforce, the collaboration between ADVETI Institutes, STS and Autodesk seeks to prepare tomorrow's generation to take full advantage of opportunities in a new global environment," said Louay Dahmash, Head of Middle East, Autodesk.

"3D Design technologies today are becoming critical to solve some of the most pressing challenges related to urbanszation, sustainable construction, efficient manufacturing and infrastructure planning. It is important for students in the region to master these skills and apply them meaningfully for overall development of the economy. With the partnership with Autodesk, we hope to provide our students and faculty access to the best of design technologies and immersive learning experiences and contribute towards building a skilled workforce in Abu Dhabi," said Dr. Khodair Abid, Director of Schools - ADVETI.
