Introduction to CAD Study Mode: Part-time   |    Course Level:

Are you keen to learn more about how CAD systems are used and how they can help develop industry 4.0? Do you want to design cars or aeroplanes, become an architect or circuit designer? If so, then this course will enable you to learn the skills you need. 

There are no specific entry requirements for this course, although an engineering background and basic IT skills are desirable.

During this course the areas of learning will be:

  • Basic objects e.g. lines, circles, arcs, radius, slots, polylines 
  • Basic construction e.g. mirror, copy, move, array, offset 
  • 3D operations e.g. extrusion, revolve, cut, sweep 
  • 2D drawing e.g. dimensions, text, isometrics, 1st/3rd angle projection, section views, assembly drawings. 

By studying this course you will: 

  • Be able to manipulate drawings and models as well as learning how to save and store drawings, parts and assemblies  
  • Understand what computer aided design is and how to use it
  • Develop skills in 3D modelling, 2D design and draughting skills

Throughout the course you will be assessed in the following ways: 

  • Completion of programmes and components drawings, models and assembly drawings
  • Written questions. 

Completion of the course will enable you to: 

  • Gain greater knowledge and qualifications in CAD
  • Apply for a full-time engineering course
  • Apply for an apprenticeship
  • Search for a job as a designer

This is a new course designed to help you gain an understanding of computer aided design processes and reading engineering drawings. This will allow you to gain some basic skills to help you gain employment, and apprenticeship or experience in the subject.
