Short term courses
This article is about the various short term courses offered by various institutes in the Mechanical engineering discipline. This article also deals about the list of courses or softwares offered and also the training institutes offering these short term courses. To get a detailed overview of how the short term courses fit into your career, then check this out.
Why short term course necessary
Mechanical engineering is an evergreen subject and students pursuing this subject obviously have an edge over the other students. But at the same case there are lakhs of students coming out of the B.E level and hence to have an edge over them is really difficult. Maybe in placements or in any member activities you have to surpass them to prove your stealth.
How short term course fit into your gear
But in other case most of the students don't pursue Mechanical as their stream because they find this stream to be very difficult, others complain you have a least or no chance to get a job in an air- conditioned room and many such claims. Though at the outset it may seem these claims are right but if you explore the opportunities we know that Mechanical engineering also offers several exciting and cool jobs that are not claimed by fresher.
So to claim for such jobs you need to define or distinguish yourself from others. So to distinguish yourself "short term courses in design and analysis" or technically courses in CAD/ CAM are the best way to help you out. Learning these courses is not an uphill job, just two hours a day will do for such courses and in other case weekend courses is also available to improve your software skills.
Overview of short term courses in Mechanical engineering
Mechanical Engineering comes with two or three design and software course along with their curriculum. But in fact these courses are not taught by our faculties to their full potential and also the case is that the software used by colleges and universities in their labs is mostly demo or free trial and as a result we cannot expect that nook and corner of the course could be taught to us.
So it is a good option to opt for short term courses that could be very useful in our placement activities. There are various software which are mostly design and analysis which could be pursued by students of Mechanical engineering stream. The following are the list of software which can be pursued as short term courses.
List of Mechanical short term courses
• Solid Edge
• Solid Works
• CAD/CAM software
• Fluent / Gambit
• CNC Programming
The above are some of the software which could be learned as short term courses. There are several institutions teaching these design and analysis software and hence there always lies a chance at your foot step. There are several advantages of learning these courses.
Short term course - Accelerates your pace
Mostly there are only a few students who choose their area of interest as Software design and analysis. So learning this could make you one among few. Other case is that generally Mechanical Engineering is about field work or mostly work in manufacturing or production sector.
If you really want to just sit before a computer and relax then learning these software will really help. Third positive is that your resume gets distinguished from others and you obviously stand a chance. Such are the advantages of learning software. There are many companies like Technip, Hyundai, Maruti Suzuki, Mahindra and many other automobile companies which are looking for the fresher with good designing and software background and so it is really good idea to go for the short term courses.
Short term course - your career sweetner
Learning software is not Hercules task. They are so simple and they are bookmarks of technological advancement in the Mechanical stream. Hence it is good to equip ourselves fully with these software skills. Learning this software will take you in Research and development, project designer and various other hi-fi departments of the organization.
There are no special requirements to learn these courses. You can start to learn from your higher secondary level or from your first or second year of your college. This will enable you to make your final year projects in design or analysis field.
The following are the various renowned training centers around India offer training in Computer Aided Manufacturing / Computer Aided Design
* CADD centre
* Centre for Professional learning and Research (CPLR)
* C Cube

Dear Rakesh, Can you please explain, what is the best time to do these courses ? Actually one of my cousin is doing B.Tech from mechanical engineering and student of 2nd semester. He was interested in doing AutoCAD but I said him to do it after completing second year. Is that the right decision ? Second question is how many time have to give to complete these courses ?
