TU Dublin has a very successful partnership with Autodesk that stretches back over 25 years, and that enables students across a range of apprenticeship, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes to access Autodesk software both on- and off-campus. This adds significantly to the employability of TU Dublin's graduates and it often cited by employers and graduates as a critical advantage.
Coming full circle, many graduates of TU Dublin programmes from across the College of Engineering & Built Environment worked on the design and construction of the landmark Windmill Lane building that now houses Autodesk's EMEA headquarters where over 150 multinational employees are based.
