SolidWorks: Four Week Comprehensive


3D CAD modeling is in high demand, this SOLIDWORKS course makes it easier for you to get a job within this field. To perform in many engineering and designing positions around the world, a candidate must be able to operate SOLIDWORKS at a high level above the competition to be seriously considered for a position. This course is an intensive four-week comprehensive that is more than simply an introduction to constraint based modeling, assembly, detailing. This training course is developed for new users who want to become proficient in SOLIDWORKS in just four weeks. 

We help designers, drafters, or engineers learn how to make changes quickly to set them up for becoming an expert faster. Our four-week programs are designed to give you the skills and confidence you need to secure a job and perform your best. Participants will want to focus their efforts on surfacing with respect to plastics, sheet metal, or FEA. 

Just like other Design Engine’s courses, you are able to customize the class in order to get the results you seek. For example, many designers want to focus their training on seating while engineers may want to focus their training on die-cast aluminum engine parts. Student-to-Instructor ratio remains small for optimum learning potential.
