This program provides students with foundational, applied, and academic knowledge and skill sets in CATIA design. The courses offer students a comprehensive picture of current best practices in CATIA design and real-life industry applied case studies. They allow students to meet their individual interests in extending their knowledge and skills needed to support engineering design and product development. This knowledge and applicable skill set will be useful for technical digital practitioners whether they are serving on commercial, para-public, national defence, municipal, provincial, and national or international structural design projects or product development projects.

No previous background is required.

You will have the opportunity to acquire and use technical skill sets and best practices in CATIA design, together with analyses of real-life industry and engineering case studies. You will learn to transform and execute CAD system logistics with CATIA as products and design contexts change.

This is an Open Admissions program to help you advance or change your career. Those who successfully complete this 2 course program are eligible to earn a Professional Development Award from The G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education.

What Will You Learn? 

Learn how to:

  • Execute profile creation, part features and dress-up features for engineering design and implementation in CATIA
  • Redeploy data, finalize design intent, execute assembly design, implement designs in context, and draft (ANSI and ISO) and visualize product structure, add and position components, analyze assemblies to ensure design coherence, design 3D parts using the Boolean approach, and code linkages in a multi-model environment.
  • Apply best practices in CATIA design and real-life industry applications to support engineering design and product development. 

This short course series is an excellent complement to the skills you may already possess as a professional.
