About the Course

The Computer Aided Design course emphasizes on the mechanical design, analysis, manufacturing and new product design and development with the aid of computer. It trains the students to design, develop and simulate and also enables them to explore new areas and create new avenues in design and manufacturing.

Salient Features

The aim and the purpose of this course is to:

  • impart advanced education in the fields of design, manufacturing, new product development and design of various components and allied sciences.
  • instill advanced knowledge in the sciences in the above fields.
  • provide up-to-date knowledge through guest lectures, technical training courses and workshops.
  • encourage research activities and publication in national/international journals.
  • provide exposure to the latest software packages, such as, Pro-E-Wildfire, CatiaV5, AutoCad 2012,Solidedge, Solidworks 2012,Nastron ,Ansys 13.0 and Abaqus.
  • provide exposure to the latest software packages, such as, Pro-E-Wildfire, CatiaV5, AutoCad 2012,Solidedge, Solidworks 2012,Nastron ,Ansys 13.0 and Abaqus.

Course Structure

Computer Aided Design is a two year (four semester) programme. The first two semesters deal with theory subjects and laboratory while the third semester deals with theory and project work – phase-I and the fourth semester is fully dedicated to project work.

Eligibility Criteria

A degree in Mechanical Engineering or allied branches from any recognized university with CGPA 6.5.

Summer Training

In order not to lose the industrial contact and touch, the students are advised to undergo an intensive summer vacation training in an industry of their choice for a period of two months which could be a prelude to their final semester project work.


The students are required to do a full-fledged project work in the campus or in an industry in the areas pertaining to their field of study. They will be guided by a department faculty and their progress will be evaluated periodically by a project review committee.

Job Opportunities

Students who pass out successfully get placed in automotive and other industries which have in-house design and R & D. There are Campus recruitment drives conducted by leading industries and students usually do not have problems in finding a placement even before completing their coursework and project.
