Computer-Aided Design (3D) - Level 2
Course Code: ET1EC297
Next available course:
Train to become a CAD draughtsperson with the City and Guilds Level 2 Computer-Aided Design (3D). This practical programme develops the knowledge and skills needed to develop your career in manufacturing or engineering design, whether you're just starting out or you're an experienced designer looking to acquire specialist 3D design skills. Deepen your understanding of the CAD parametric modelling environment and its application as you learn how to create sketches, work features, table driven parts and assemblies as well as a drawing layout. Expert tuition is for just 3 hours a week, allowing you to fit study around other commitments.
No formal qualifications are needed for this course, though the City and Guilds Level 1 Parametric Modelling would be an advantage, as would a working knowledge of Autodesk Inventor software.
Ideally, you will be familiar with current Windows operating systems and have basic relevant design experience.
