CATIA Foundations

Course Description

CATIA is a multi-platform software suite for computer-aided design, manufacturing, and engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE) used across many industries, including automotive, machine, tool, die and mold (MTDM), and aerospace, to develop the products we use in our everyday lives.  CATIA's capabilities include 3D modeling, stress analysis, kinematics design, and surface modeling, among many other features.

In this hands-on, applied workshop series, you will gain an understanding of the powerful functionality of CATIA V5, and will use the software to engage in authentic activities and solve real-world problems posed by industry partners.
