Fusion 360 for Engineers

Design functionality, analysis, and manufacturability are core to an engineer designer. Whether it’s a small part or larger assembly, you'll ask: “Will it work? Will it break? Can I manufacture it?". These questions drive the design process. With Autodesk Fusion 360 CAD/CAM, all aspects of the engineering process can be addressed in one cloud-based platform. In this course, you will work with imported FSAE chassis models, design and simulate mechanical suspension components, and validate motion through the creation of an assembly. You will learn how to manage and organize bodies and components in your model, create complex geometry, analyze mechanical loads and thermal stresses, and shape optimization based on-load paths. You will also create detailed engineering drawings, make exploded view animations, and validate mechanical motion with an assembly. After completing this course, you will have the skills needed to complete all aspects of computer aided engineering.

Thank you to the FSAE HorsePower Hannover team for their contribution of the FSAE car model used in this course.

This is the most complete course I've found, everything was well explained with easy to follow examples. It was a really amazing experience and learned a lot from this. Thank you Matt!
@Jason Scott Thanks for your question. We have different activities for the different memberships of the Autodesk Student Expert Network. Some activities will get you to the Expert membership and some not. Unfortunately, earning the certificate of completion isn't enough on it's own to become a Student Expert. You can learn more about the requirements to become a Student Expert here: https://academy.autodesk.com/student-expert-network Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the Student Achievement Guide.
@Rafael Matheus We're happy to hear you like the course. Matt has several other courses on Design Academy, including Fusion 360 for Designers and Fusion 360 for Machinists. We encourage you to take them all! You'll find these courses here: https://academy.autodesk.com/explore-and-learn.
