Education

Synergis is here to help you better prepare your students for the technological challenges of the 21st century.  We’re an Autodesk Authorized Academic Partner with a breadth of educational support and experience other software resellers can’t match.  As an Authorized Academic Partner we're an approved Certification site and certified to provide e-learning courses.
 
Autodesk announced in a press release earlier this month, it is moving to a “no-fee model” on all education software (effective June 7, 2014) and is offering free software licenses on the majority of Autodesk software.  This is great news, as it means educational institutions will no longer have to pay for Autodesk products and licenses for the classroom or for instructors. 

While you will no longer engage with Synergis to purchase your education software, our long term relationship with schools and your success in installing the software is very important to us.  As such, Synergis will be offering multiple options for service and support that all schools can elect to purchase.  While there is a charge for these services, we are extending special pricing until July 31, 2014, in alignment with current Autodesk software budgets so we can continue to provide support to you and ensure a seamless transition to this new model.
