If you are taking courses that utilize AutoDesk products in Academic year 2015/2016 please be advised that we are currently using the AutoDesk suite version 2015. If you need to download this software to work on class files outside the labs please make sure you download the same version in order to avoid incompatibility issues with your files and potential data loss.

For Example:

If using AutoCAD 2015 you MUST go to the individual application and select that version. Clicking on the AutoDesk suites will only allow you to install the latest version.

Navigate to All Products on the Free software page.
