What is the Fusion 360 DesignNow Designathon?

The DesignNow Designathon is a two-day event on-campus, where we celebrate aspiring young designers and engineers as they address real-world design challenges using Autodesk Fusion 360 design software.

Participants at this product training and competition will be immersed in an intensive, hands-on program where they will be coached and mentored by the best in the industry. The experience at the Fusion 360 DesignNow will be a fun and fascinating opportunity to learn Fusion 360, practice design skills and team collaboration in a hands-on challenge against time.
