Courses To Do Just After Your Mechanical and Automobile Engineering Graduation!

               Hello, everyone! I hope all are doing fine in these hard times of pandemic. So today’s blog is going to be very helpful to all the engineering students. You know how earlier people used to say, “Get an engineering degree and your life is set”. Well, that’s not how things work nowadays, I hope even you guys know it too. Our syllabus and university exams just get us familiar with traditional engineering subjects and not reality. Now you’ll be thinking what is reality then if not this? Let me tell you, Reality is nobody (except the ones who get directly hired from college campus recruitment) is going to get a good-paying job based on just their engineering degree. You need to be adaptable to current technologies, new skills, and software tools. The theoretical knowledge and the long answers that you write in your exams to get good marks are not going to help you here. In today’s world, the competition is so severe that you have to have an extra skill, extra certificate, extra training, extra something or the other thing that’ll make you stand out from the lakhs of students graduating with you. Whether you believe it or not but that’s how it is today. So, we are providing you with a list and brief information about the skills and courses (for different engineering branches) which may benefit you for getting a kickstart in your career.

Courses for Mechanical and Automobile Engineering students:

  1. AUTOCAD:

     Many of you have heard this word before, haven’t you? AutoCAD stands for Computer-Aided Design. This software used for designing and drafting. AutoCAD is important for engineers (mostly Mechanical, civil, Automobile, and production engineers) to produce 2D and 3D designs. It is used to produce an engaging piece of work. It allows a user to conceptualize ideas, product designs, and drawings to the required level of technical accuracy, perform rapid design calculations and simulations in the field of manufacturing industries.

  1. CATIA:

     CATIA stands for Computer Aided Three dimensional Interactive Application. It is now a software suite that incorporates the following capabilities; CAD, CAM, and CAE. CAD (Computer-Aided Design) allows 2D and 3D design. CAM (Computer Aided Manufacture) allows manufacturing processes to be designed for 3D model manufacture. CAE (Computer-Aided Engineering) allows verification through the analysis of 3D models.

  1. SOLIDWORKS:

     SOLIDWORKS is used to develop mechatronic systems from beginning to end. At the initial stage, the software is used for planning, visual ideation, modeling, feasibility assessment, prototyping, and project management. The software is then used for the design and building of mechanical, electrical, and software elements. It is more easy and effective to use and it is more focused on CAD design.

  1. Revit MEP:

     Autodesk Revit Mep is a building information modeling (BIM) software created by Autodesk for professionals who engage in MEP engineering. MEP stands for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing, which are the three engineering disciplines that Revit MEP addresses. It is used to develop Mechanical (HVAC, Fire Protection), Electrical (Lighting, Power, Low Voltage- TV, Communication), Plumbing (Water Supply & Drainage) BIMs. Revit is a software for BIM (building information modeling) with tools to create intelligent 3D models of buildings, which can then be used to produce construction documentation.

  1. NX CAD:

     NX CAD is a robust 3D solution that provides fast and realistic concept design and modeling. The software is an integrated product design solution which streamlines and increase product development process for those engineers who are willing to deliver an innovative product in a collaborative environment. It similar to CATIA, CREO and it is the advanced software that is used widely after CATIA.

  1. GD and T:

     GD and T stand for Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) is a language of symbols and standards designed and used by engineers and manufacturers to describe a product and facilitate communication between entities working together to produce something. The GD&T methodology is currently used in Automotive, Heavy Equipment, Aviation, and several other industries.

  1. Mastercam:

     MasterCam is also a CAD/CAM computer software program. It is mainly used in the manufacturing industry. It allows machinists to design and manufacture parts using a highly-sophisticated tool-control technology. From fixing flaws in an imported model to creating fixtures for work holding on a machine-and so much more, this powerful CAD engine includes modeling and prep tools for CAM programmers to get parts on and off machines quickly.

  1. MSP with PPM:

     Project Planning and Management (PPM) is crucial for Architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry to make a better financial and qualitative performance of the industry. PPM helps plan, organize, schedule, track, and report the project process. Mainly, Microsoft Project (MSP) is one of the best PPM tools that simplifies project planning in the AEC industry.
