Amazing work experience opportunity at Autodesk. I was challenged, trusted and given plenty of responsibility with actual projects that make a difference in the company. The atmosphere is amazing and had a real sense of community with many other interns in the same position. Will definitely be coming back after graduation.
It was a really good opportunity, and the 2 week training provided at the start of my summer placement helped me get up to the same starting level as the other interns who were perhaps more experienced than me before starting. The company valued me and supported me through completing my work, even when I found parts difficult.
I really enjoyed the first two weeks of C++ and software development training, which was run by one of the company's chief software architects. There were many interns and graduates and they were all placed into different teams; I was unlucky to be placed into a team which wasn't a good fit for me in terms of enjoying my work. The tasks given to me were mostly bug fixes within a codebase too large to get to grips with within only 10 weeks, and with many legacy aspects which made working with it harder than usual. However, my only complaint is with the tasks I was assigned; otherwise the training, the work socials and my colleagues were very nice.
The internship was very enjoyable, this company has a great working atmosphere and everyone is friendly. This made me and all the other interns feel very comfortable. There was an informative training course in the first 2 weeks which ensured everyone had the knowledge to work well in the following 8 weeks. The work given was interesting.
I thought it was very informative and I was able to look into this company as a whole while also seeing the inner workings present in the company. The company is so large however I never did feel like I was not needed in this place of work and found myself happy at the end of each day.
The internship was overall a very enjoyable experience. I was involved in a real-life project that involved working with cutting edge equipment and a trip to France. Everyone in the office was very friendly, with a nice working atmosphere and several social events. If you’re interested in CAD/CAM, I would definitely recommend it.
The project I was assigned was incredibly unusual and provided a lot of scope for enjoyable work. I enjoyed being able to work on a unique project, as a consultant to an external company, and had opportunity to develop interpersonal as well as technical skills.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the company. The environment was as friendly as it could be and that seemed to be the thing that surprised most of the other interns as well. Since almost all new company members are recruited through the intern and graduate schemes, the whole internship is worked out very well and no stress is placed on you.
I enjoyed the internship greatly. The office was nice and relaxed which helped me settle in and everyone was so nice and helpful. The work was also very interesting and I got to do a wide variety of tasks that taught me various important techniques. My team, and the company as a whole, were very open and I felt like I could always go and see them if I needed assistance.
I was given a single main project to complete over my 10 week placement and the nature of the project was very interesting. It required me to get used to the way in which the code base was laid out. Once this initial effort had been put in it was fun to see how the end aim was achieved within the code and how my new code would fit into this.
After having hesitations with working with a primarily software producing company for over 2 months, I quickly found myself really enjoying the placement. It was hands on and I did get to use one of the more basic CNC machines and was able to make my part in real using their software for my project.
