Computer Aided Draughting and Design (Blended Learning)

The programme has been designed to provide the learners with the skills and related knowledge in the application and modification of two dimensional and three dimensional computer aided draughting, to expose students to the latest state-of-the-art CAD software and to develop their attitudes, personal effectiveness and job seeking skills that will enable them to obtain employment using various computer aided draughting and design software packages.

Learners will get the opportunity to work with the latest software, e.g. AutoCAD, Revit, Inventor, Solidworks, Plant 3D, Navisworks, 3D Max, Sketch Up and many more.
