Programs Covered

Product Ideation and Design using Solid and Surface Modelling
The first stage in designing a new product is requirements gathering. This is followed by making a rough sketch of the product. Understand how to take this sketch to the 3D model is a tremendous skill to have. This is exactly what you will learn in this course first. Further, you will be learning both solid and surface modelling.

Sheet Metal basics and A to Z design process
In the second course, you will master the sheet metal design process through an enormous amount of practical training.

Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing
Learning to create 3D models is a good skill set to have. Designing to tolerances is ultimately what the company is hiring you for. This is exactly what you will be learning in this module.

Advanced Automotive Body in White Design
A design engineer needs to interface with other teams (crash, durability, manufacturing, and suppliers). All these teams provide critical information that are taken into account by the design engineer. In this course, you will not only push your design skills to the next level, but you will also learn about the entire vehicle development process.

Plastic Design using Catia v5
In this course, you will learn the basics of plastic design and workbench. You will also cover part design workbench, surface design workbench, creating power copy and you will learn about adding thickness to styling surface. 

Mold design using Solidworks
This course contains 12 weeks of curated content taking you through the very basics of SolidWorks where we take you through all the commands required for you to get a good grasp of the tool. Then we introduce you to the basics of plastics and injection moulding where you will get a better understanding of the processes involved. We then take you through the steps involved in creating a basic mould for simple parts. Over the weeks, you will be introduced to more complex concepts in mold design.
