CAD / CAM Engineering

CAD / CAM engineering programme from ASTI is focused to promote all the skills & knowledge needed for the manufacturing, designing  & drafting industry. CAD stands for Computer-Aided Design and CAM stands for Computer-Aided Manufacturing, both of these programs are used to make things. CAD/CAM software is used to design and manufacture models, finished products, and manufacturing products. CAD software helps designers and CAM reduces manpower costs in the manufacturing process.

ASTI offers its learner’s certification program in computer-aided design (CAD)  computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) theory and applications. CAD gives a true visualization of the product and can generate drawings of all views while CAM helps in the precise machining of the component. This CAD software is used heavily in the mechanical engineering, civil engineering, and electrical design industries.

CAD / CAM Engineering Course Overview

CAD software is used by engineers, architects, and construction managers, Civil engineers generally use CAD to create base maps for construction documentation. Electrical systems use CAD software to make ensure that the system works properly, which makes CAD tools beneficial to electrical engineers. CAD/CAM practical training program from ASTI makes the learners design & draft their next innovation and helps the professionals to list their skills in their resumes.

 Also, It helps learners in creating designs in either 2D or 3D so that they can visualize the construction and enables the development, modification, and optimization of the design process. CAD software enables mechanical engineers to create product designs with accurate and detailed technical drawings like 2D or 3D models and specifications for engineering and manufacturing.

Aims & Objectives Of CAD/CAM Engineering

ASTI actualizes a mix of scholastic learning and handy sessions with well-defined course modules & training sessions to give the learners an ideal presentation that guides them well in their conversion from gullible learners into proven experts. ASTI is following a learn-by-doing approach to truly master all the skills needed for this certification program. This streamlined certification program will help the trainee to gain the right skills to design & draft.

CAD has replaced manual drafting. ASTI provides industrial training with the help of the latest software technology with world-class facilities which makes the trainees gain practical knowledge. The learning process is interactive & the course has been structured by certified professionals within the industry and corporate professionals.

CAD / CAM Engineering Career Pathways

CAD / CAM careers are incredibly rewarding and challenging. While completing this program, learners might get the opportunity to work with a team of dedicated professionals and be part of creating something great. Also, CAD careers are here to stay — every engineering and architecture team must have skilled CAD professionals and drafters.

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) technicians

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) technicians are responsible for creating electronic design plans for buildings and machinery using computer software. CAD technicians work together with building architects and professional draftsmen to turn blueprints and technical drawings into 2D and 3D computer models.

CAD designer

CAD designers use computer software to create detailed and clear construction plans. They attend meetings with clients to understand project specifications, allocate resources, create timelines, and draft 2D and 3D construction plans using design software.

Mechanical CAD Engineer

Mechanical CAD engineers are responsible for planning and executing mechanical designs using CAD, CAM, and 3D CAD programs. Also, these professionals will Perform computer simulations and experiments to virtually test and refine the designs and Oversee the development and manufacturing of physical prototypes for testing.

CAD / CAM Programmer

As a programmer ,you will be responsible for creating detailed manufacturing instructions that guide the machinery used to produce parts. They use CAD software to create and test designs before they are produced.
