Auto CAD (2D + 3D)

for Civil, Mechanical & Electrical Engineers


Overview / Introduction

AutoCAD is industry’s leading drafting tool for huge Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Projects. AutoCAD is handy and command based software with special tools for Mechanical drafting and designing, always with accurate measurements and automated formats.

This course is special and specific for Mechanical/Electrical engineering and devoted for great and complex mechanical projects.

At the completion of this course participants will be able to work boldly in field or at desk with dexterity and competency.

Dexterity Level,

We’ll cover AutoCAD from basics to intermediate level through this quick and rich course. With command based inputs participants will have this skill…….. To draw, shape, reshape, design or model a Mechanical project with real unites and accurate measurements and turn it into a real world complex mechanical project. We’ll go through the entire software including tips about mechanical/ electrical drawings especially related to mechanical and electrical projects. This short course is more than sufficient for putting your dream projects from pen to paper.

Learning Objectives / Course Objectives

Through this course sub-engineers and engineers of Electrical and mechanical field will learn how to use computer in there very specific type of job. AutoCAD will be used as a tool which enables engineers / sub-engineers to perform modern techniques for creating objects and manipulating them in 3d co-ordinates. Trainees will learn the basics of AutoCAD software with maximum possibility to intermediate level of expertise. At the end of training, trainee will be able to get job or perform tasks in electrical and mechanical industry with the help of computer generated imagery.
