This course is necessary to develop skills used to properly locate and interpret the dimensions found within engineering drawings, basic software commands and how to create and modify drawings.

What is AUTOCAD?

AutoCAD is a computer-aided drafting software program used for creating blueprints for buildings, bridges and computer chips. AutoCAD is used mainly by drafters, although engineers, surveyors and architects may need to use the software from time to time. AutoCAD is a 2-D and 3-D computer-aided drafting software application used in architecture, construction and manufacturing to assist in the preparation of blueprints and other engineering plans. Professionals who use AutoCAD are often referred to as drafters. While drafters work in a number of specialties, the six most common specialization areas are mechanical drafting, architectural drafting, civil drafting, electrical drafting, electronics drafting and aeronautical drafting.

Why AUTOCAD is Important for Engineers?

According to KOFACTS, AutoCAD is a software program which has been used in various industries for many years. This software can help architects, designers, engineers and more create designs and then see if they will work before spending money and taking a risk on the project. This particular product is used for the engineering of new bridges, buildings, stadiums, homes, electrical and so much more. This software is actually very helpful for engineers and engineering students, especially those that which to enjoy the impact of engineering.

  • The biggest advantage to AutoCAD classes is that it improves productivity. This is why so many companies enrol team members for these training sessions. It helps the student visualise their final product and see how it will work, ensuring they have taken all the necessary steps before putting the project forward.
  • The next advantage to this type of training is that the quality of the design is dramatically improved. This makes it easier when working with a group to show the design and everyone understand it, again saving time and energy and enabling staff to complete projects quicker than if they were drawing them manually.
  • The software enables users to create documentation for their design. This is a major benefit to taking AutoCAD classes and learning how this documentation is developed, helping others understand what is involved in the design with ease. Documentation includes everything from the materials to be used to components and specifications, very important in architectural design where the drawings are sent to a contractor who has to understand every step of the way.
  • This type of training teaches students the importance of manufacturing databases, how to create and use them and how it will help them improve their overall productivity.
  • This software is so easy to use and offers the ease of cut, copy and paste, saving time, energy and making it easy to use once you know how. Companies and private individuals choose AutoCAD classes to develop skills to help in business.
  • Anyone looking for a job in the architectural or engineering sector will benefit greatly from having a certificate in this type of training. It enables the person to join a company and get to work, understanding the software used and helping them be a productive member of the team from day one.
  • Companies looking to develop their teams can choose this type of training, registering team members into classes which are held at GPSSE always.
  • Understanding how the software works and what it can be used for is hugely advantageous in any industry that requires design and innovation. Those who complete this type of course can build anything from buildings to electrical circuits and stadiums to bridges and anything else that is needed by their company with complete specifications, materials, components, descriptions and proof that it works.
