PTC Academic Case Studies

CAD classes taught by industry experts are offered Live In Class & Online and most software is made avaulabe for free to qualified students.

The DMT “CAD” Department currently offers a variety of Creo Parametric (Pro/ENGINEER), SolidWorks, Siemens NX (Unigraphics), Autodesk Inventor, GD&T, AutoCAD  and 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing (AM) classes.
Since 1984, the CAD program has evolved to meet the changing needs of the local Silicon Valley engineering and design firms. More than 12,000 students and professionals have been trained in our CTE program over the decades. 3D Printing, Creo Parametric (formerly Pro/ENGINEER), GD&T, SolidWorks, Autodesk Inventor, Siemens NX and AutoCAD courses are scheduled as on-campus and online. Since most the lectures are recorded, you can take the classes from anywhere you have an internet connection and watch the lecture as needed. 

Most CAD software is available as a free download from PTC Creo Parametric or SolidWorks in the form of a Student Edition.
