AutoCAD and Fusion360 are different beasts meant for mostly different things. The closer Autodesk suite would be Inventor though.

I've only had a bit of time to mess around with Fusion (I'm really liking it), but from what I see they share the UI and some shortcuts, but the skills used in both are kind of different. It really depends on what you're using AutoCAD for though.

We mainly use it for plant layout. We take the drawings that our vendors give us and place equipment, and figure out all the in between stuff like foundations, piping, and electrical

If you've never used AutoCAD then download a free copy of DraftSight to mess with. They're similar programs for 2D CAD.

Fusion 360 is what a mechanical engineer would use.
AutoCAD is something that prevailed mostly for civil engineering. You create 2D drawing of things, there is no 3D. It is not parametric.

So yes they're different in usage
