This article is about different short term designing courses which will be useful for Mechanical and Civil engineers. After completing diploma and engineering course there are many fields like production, machining and designing. If you are about to select designing field then this airtcle will be useful.


In diplamo and engineering courses, designing is also a part which will be in the form of practical. Designing in the field of Mechanical and civil is nothing but drawing the required project in a software. In mechanical and automobile designing the diagrams are based on machines and tools. In civil designing the diagrams are based on buildings and bridges. These designings can be done by some softwares and there are different software for different kind of projects.

Short Term Designing Courses and its Types

The designing can be learned through various short term courses. Even though there are practical and theory on designing in diplamo and Engineering subject a short term course with a certificate would give a preference in the designing field when applied for a job. The types of designing programs are

  • CAD

  • PRO-E



  • CAD

    The definition of CAD is Computer Aided Design or Computer Aided Drafting. Its a software application which is used to draw and design in 2D and 3d. The cad can be used to design both mechanical and civil projects respectively called as Auto CAD and Civil CAD.

    PRO - E

    Pro/ENGINEER is a parametric, intergrated 3D CAD/CAM. It is an upgraded version or a better version than auto CAD but the purpose is same as like CAD. It is advanced in 3D designing which is more easy than CAD.


    CATIA is Computer Aided Three-dimensional Interactie Application. This a multiple platform of CAD/CAM and advanced in 3D designing. In this application you can draw the Mechanical designs easily and can apply design different surfaces with colours. CATIA is now most widely used design software in most of the automobile industry and aerospace industry. The short term courses on CATIA is rare in major cities of India and also the teaching in some institute is not enough for the practical work.


    Ansys is a engineering simulation software, computer aided engineering or CAE. ANSYS is the present and also a future designing tool in the field of mechanical and automobile projects. ANSYS is also used for simulation and calculation. An expert in ansys will have a best future in the designing field. The fee of the course will be more then compared to normal courses.


    All diplamo and engineering degree holders can do these course if there is an intrest in the designing field. Today in electrical field also the CAD designing is required.
    ITI holders in the field of mechanical and civil can also do the designing course for a better future.
    Note : The courses must be done in any goverment approved institution. A certificate in all these courses is enough to be a design engineer in the field of Mechanical and also Civil.


  • The courses are short time only six to eight months with minimum hours per day.

  • The courses can be completed by both full time and part time.

  • Job oppurtunities are more in the field of designing with high pay.

  • Designing projects for private concerns will be helpful in earning without investment.

  • Disadvantage

  • The fees of the short time courses will be more than the normal courses.

  • Most of the institute are not goverment approved and the certificate issued by that institute is useless

  • Jobs in designing field need some experience so its not good for expecting an immediate job in the field.
