With a total duration of over 450 hours, the Master Diploma in Automotive Design introduces automotive design, production concepts, and training on Computer aided design tools such as Pro/Engineer, CATIA, ANSYS, NX CAD, NX CAM, and NX NASTRAN. Course fee is Rs.79900 plus taxes including study materials.
The Master Diploma in Aerospace Design is a 464-hour programme that trains students on Pro/ENGINEER, CATIA, ANSYS, NX CAD, NX CAM, NX NASTRAN, besides providing a comprehensive overview of the aerospace design processes. Course fee is Rs. 79900 plus taxes including study materials.
Students pursuing both these programmes would get to learn Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing, a language used to precisely communicate mechanical engineering drawings. CADD Centre would provide authorized courseware for all software tools, and exclusive workbooks on automotive design, and aerospace design.
Commenting about the programmes, Mr S Karaiadiselvan, Managing Director, CADD Centre, said that there are huge job opportunities for engineers in automotive and aerospace industry in India. The size of India's automotive industry is estimated at US$ 72 billion. It employs around 15 million people. The automobile industry is expected to invest over $17 billion in the next 5 years. According to an industry report, India's aerospace & defense industry would be close to $45 billion by 2015.
However, the growing skill gap, and lack of employable engineers might affect the growth of the automotive and aerospace industry. Though the country has a pool of qualified engineering, science and computer graduates, they have to be introduced to, and trained in the latest design, and production concepts and CAD tools.
Mr Selvan added that CADD Centre's Master Diploma courses in automotive and aerospace design are created with inputs from the industry. The curriculum for the software tools are authorized by the concerned software developers, and the faculty are regularly trained in current industry practices.
The Master Diploma in Automotive Design imparts technical skills to automotive professionals engaged in developing, manufacturing and testing vehicles and their systems. The students would be provided with an exclusive practice workbook which contains an overview and exercises of various components specific to automotive domain to strengthen the understanding of students on the fundamental aspects on automotive engineering. Similarly, the Master Diploma in Aerospace Design enhances the students design and analysis skills that go into the making of airplanes, aircraft and spacecrafts. The course also provides an overview of various components specific to aerospace.
Upon completion of the Master Diploma, students can become design, analysis engineers in the domains of automotive and aerospace industries and the institute's placement cell will help the students in fetching jobs after successful completion of the programmes.
