You learnt CAD – What’s next?
So you’ve done CAD and are wondering what’s next? We will try to answer that in this blog. If you’re considering working after learning CAD, we’ve answered that in the previous posts how there are tons of industries that require CAD draftsmen, and that there are ample job opportunities available after CAD. Industries like automobile, space research, biomedical industries, space research, robotics, mechatronics, machine design, biomechanics, etc
Now, let’s look at it if we consider studying ahead. As highlighted previously, there lies a supreme power when CAD – Computer Aided Drawing and CAM – Computer-Aided Manufacturing are combined, and when used together they can make one capable enough to create an entire manufacturing line with the appropriate tools. CAD and CAM combined have lots of scope in the manufacturing industry, and there are lots of mechanical jobs available. Check out our course on CNC Programming here.
Don’t worry if you don’t wish to go into the manufacturing industry, there are other opportunities also! You can get into 3D printing. We have a course on Rapid Prototyping with 3D printing. In which we use two software – Rapid Forge 360 and Cam Forge 240. If you don’t have previous knowledge in CAD, you can learn both together in a combined course especially for you! But why 3D printing? Other than making you look cool, 3D printing has numerous other benefits. It is a method that allows you to create on-demand, lightweight, and complex flexible designs that no other forms of manufacturing can replicate. This eco-friendly, cost-effective method has applications in lots of industries like education, dentistry, aerospace, automobile, and many more!

Say you don’t wish to get into manufacturing at all, you might want to consider a degree in piping engineering. A unique, out of the box course, piping engineering isn’t just another degree you might find everywhere! Pipes form an essential part of any building and piping engineering connects them all! After learning Piping Engineering, one can get many opportunities in the construction industry. Check out our course on Piping Engineering here.
Next, you can learn Autodesk Revit. Revit is software used in multiple industries and like AutoCAD, both engineers and architects use this software, but their uses are very different from each other. Revit is a BIM – Building Information Modelling Software, and it replicates CAD to create real physical building components. There are two courses one can learn in for Revit – Revit MEP and Revit Architectural and Structural.
Revit MEP – MEP stands for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing. This course is ideal to be paired with HVAC consultants, Electrical Engineering Students, and Piping Engineering Students. HVAC can be paired with Revit MEP as software. Electrical engineers can use it to design PCB circuit boards among many other things. With the knowledge of piping engineering and with Revit MEP as software one can design a complete piping system.
Revit Architectural and Structural – This one is ideal for Civil Engineers and Architects. Learn about the ins and outs of how the CAD of a building structure is formed, keeping in mind all the physical parameters that affect the structure. All of this is possible by Revit’s underlying relational database architecture which all its creators call the parametric change engine.
All of this can be very confusing, but don’t worry that’s where internships and job assistance play an important role. Sometimes deciding which course you want to take up can also be very overwhelming. Don’t worry that’s where we come into the picture. Feel free to talk to our counselor, who’ll happily help you to decide on a field! Call us on 9372941417 now!
Still at student, Arya is going to studying Mechanical Engineering at The University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. He aspires to be an entrepreneur in the future, and is an intern right now at Text and Clicks. He is very enthusiastic and hard working, and loves adventure.
