The Mortenson Center’s mission

The Mortenson Center at the University of Colorado Boulder is a destination for engineering students to make a global impact. Faculty, students, and alumni have worked in over 40 countries to improve and allow access to water, sanitation, air quality, and pedestrian footbridges for millions of people.

Autodesk engagement

The Mortenson team uses Autodesk Fusion 360 and Eagle to rapidly design "internet of things" sensor technologies for water, sanitation, and energy systems deployed in 150 countries. The software helps them iterate designs in collaboration with technical staff in Kenya, Ethiopia, Colorado, Oregon, and California, while moving from the concept to installation phase in a matter of weeks.
