AutoCAD® is Computer-aided Design (CAD) software that the community of architects, engineers and construction professionals beneficially use to create precise 2D and 3D drawings.

 This application can be effectively used to –

  • Draft and edit 2D geometry and 3D models with solids, surfaces and mesh objects
  • Annotate drawings with text, dimensions, leaders and tables
  • Customize with add-on apps and APIs.

 The specialized tool-sets offered along with the software’s like those mentioned hereunder – enable the user to work faster and more efficiently


AutoCAD now extends much farther to include industry-specific features and intelligent objects for architecture, mechanical engineering, electrical design and more to-

  • Automate floor plans, sections and levels
  • Draw piping, ducting and circuiting quickly with parts libraries
  • Auto-generate annotations, layers, schedules, lists and tables
  • Use a rules-driven workflow to accurately enforce industry standards.

Today, we are living in an era of digitization, wherein industries are shifting and increasingly progressing towards digital platform.

Such a scenario calls for the need of specialized and trained workforce, which is increasing more rapidly today than never before.

In the present scenario, there is increasing demand of personnel, who are skilled in specific areas and fields.

For example, a person who is skilled in the software like AutoCAD along with the concept of Engineering becomes in prime demand.

Students having a Completion Certificate in the concepts of engineering and AutoCAD have the critical potential of creating better technical drawing and that can result in progressively fabulous advancement of their career.

Certificate in AutoCAD:  What is it about?

This course helps students to understand the concepts of Engineering drawing Projections, and different nomenclature which are being used in the industries in technical or non-technical manner.

The syllabus includes following topics of tremendous value and use –

  • AutoCAD Interface
  • Creation / Draw Tools
  • Modification / Editing Tools
  • Presentation/ Productivity Tools

Like all other certificate courses, a Certificate in AutoCAD course enables the students have an exposure on practical and concept related to drafting and designing of different industry verticals, which eventually  makes them eligible to be the best fit in the industries.

The course curriculum is adeptly devised and is quite relevant with the industry and it enables adequate space to students for innovation and exploration in the field of various design applications. Also it might help the students in research and development of new products in their own ingenious way.

Course fee:

There are multiple guiding factors for taking a decision as to “which skill provider institute they should join?” One of the KEY factors is AutoCad Course fee. Others are already mentioned in our previous blog you can visit- Must Know Before Joining Any Cad Training Institute

While deciding the structure of ‘Course Fee’ following factors are taken into consideration –

  • Course Offerings Course relevant to industries and current scenarios and should cover the whole spectrum of industry.
  • Know your Resource Person- Industry experienced Certified and domain expert faculty, who have kept updated with the new trends of industry.
  • Infrastructure-Well equipped to give Practical and Theory knowledge to the students related to the curriculum.
  • Mode of Teaching- One should be able to understand the difference between online and offline mode of teaching.
  • Certificate- Certificate should have a weightage in terms of content and authorization.
  • Support- After the completion of the course, students have an access to the institute and they can clear any doubts related to the curriculum lifetime.

There is a huge deviation and variation in the course fee proposed by different institutes. It is very much advisable for you to review the above mentioned factors and have necessary discussion with the domain expert related to the branch of engineering before you make your final decision.

Certificate in AutoCAD: Career Prospects:

It is very important for an institute, which is offering these skill driven courses to make sure that they are providing adequate knowledge to bridge the gap between industry and colleges.

 The students who get trained in the particular institute should be well equipped to become successful individuals who will have the complete knowledge of applying it as a drafting tool to produce 2D working drawings.

 Students who all are learning these skill sets are destined to explore and learn the domain knowledge of design industries and by these skills they can shape their future aspects.

 After completing the course curriculum students are able to create and customize the layout in the form of 2D drafting and drawing which can turn into a potential solution for projects.

 Unlike other courses these type of skill related courses are recognized as job oriented and which guarantees a job in the field of Engineering after the successful completion of the course.
