This programme is now full to capacity and closed to registrations for the 20-21 academic year.

The use of computer aided design (CAD) systems in industry has become an essential part of the modern working environment. It is used at all stages of the design period, from conceptualisation and production of working drawings to the production of virtual reality images. This unit aims to further candidates understanding of the CAD Parametric Modelling environment. 

What are the entry requirements?

Although there are no formal entry requirements, participants are expected to have a basic knowledge of computers and computing skills. This course is suitable for learners that widh to develop skills and knowledge in the CAD environment. 

An adequate level of English is required to participate in this course.
