Welcome to our online Esri CityEngine training course pages! This is a new training service ideal for individuals and companies looking to learn CityEngine.
Background: We have conducted a variety of training courses from our home base in Sedbergh as well as Lancaster University. We were the first to offer Esri CityEngine training worldwide, and we’ve been doing project work with it since 2009. Since 2013 we have been conducting formal CityEngine training courses for a wide range of clients.
Until ‘normal’ working can resume we have modified our CityEngine course to be available over video conferencing technology. We have already delivered successfully our training in this method for a large organisation and can now offer it worldwide.
What is the offering? There are two parts to our training, first a 2-day (or equivalent depending on your time zone) CityEngine training session via video conference. Then optionally you can purchase access to our online content which consists of videos and additional content showing workflows and methodology for creating procedural 3D models. There are currently three modules in our online training material:
- Esri CityEngine for Professionals
The full online training course which gets you up and running with CityEngine and introduces you to coding and key workflows. This will include ‘one-to-one’ instructor interaction through video conferencing software.
- CityEngine: The Workflows
Included as part of the main course new workflows and mini-projects will be posted on a regular basis which assume familiarity with the CityEngine interface. It will include popular visualisation and 3D modelling program workflows and progress from there.
- CityEngine Shorts
Quick videos and workflow demos to inspire and inform.
- [COMING SOON: CityEngine: The GD3D Tutorials
From essential workflows to key skills, this set of concise tutorials with real data will be a great starting point for project ideas you may have.]
- [COMING SOON: ArcGIS Pro: The Basics
If you work with CityEngine from a planning, architecture and/or GIS perspective you cannot ignore ArcGIS Pro Esri’s desktop professional GIS! This set of lessons will get you on the right track. ]
As the service here expands we intend on producing more content for subscribers. We also take requests as well, to keep the content relevant to our customers.
Garsdale Design is a proud Esri Silver Partner and EsriUK’s official CityEngine training provider here in the UK. We can provide CityEngine training worldwide with the help of our partners as well as Esri Distributors.

Esri CityEngine is fantastic, but it really shines when used in conjunction with other professional software packages. From imports to exports Esri CityEngine is versatile. You do need to know what bits work and where though. So, in addition to our online CityEngine course we have created a series of short tutorials that focus on
Quick videos/workflows/demos that do not fit within the more formalised course structures.
