Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) has signed a Memorandum of Intent (MOI) with the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) to advance the learning environment in Singapore secondary schools through the use of Autodesk design software. This nationwide partnership will enable over 200,000 secondary school students to access Autodesk’s professional-grade software. This marks the first time IDA has partnered with a software company to provide mentoring and technology access across all of Singapore’s secondary schools, as well as software training for all teachers.

Students will use the Autodesk Education Master Suite and Autodesk Entertainment Creation Suite for Education. Applied to the daily secondary school curricula, the suites include Autodesk software used by professional architects, engineers and digital artists. The goal is to help students develop technological skills that can be applied across many disciplines.

Andrew Khaw, Senior Director, Industry Development Group, IDA said, “This new collaboration between IDA and Autodesk underpins our shared efforts to invest in Singapore's infocomm talent, grooming them into next-generation leaders and skilled professionals. We appreciate Autodesk’s commitment to providing all secondary school students hands-on exposure to professional-grade software, as well as valuable job shadowing opportunities. With such strong support from industry and academia, we are hopeful that more of such partnerships will come to bear, opening new and exciting possibilities for our young talent.”

Chris Bradshaw, Autodesk Chief Marketing Officer and SVP Reputation, Consumer and Education, said, “We are collaborating with IDA to ensure that today’s students make a profound impact on the world through innovation, creativity, and smart design. Concurrently, we are also working with Singapore educators to develop curriculum, training programs and lesson plans. Autodesk helps educators and students think beyond traditional academic borders, become engaged with the commercial sector, and explore ideas through the use of advanced technology.”
