For students, the software provides unique drafting tools that can be used to bring their engineering ideas to life with the accuracy they require
CREO Creo makes conversion of 2D to 3D, and usage of 3D geometry for simulation and analysis possible. Product designers and engineers are required to have complete knowledge of developing a product design virtually. Creo comes with all the tools that are required for completing a product design.
Students can use wide range of this tool for converting their engineering ideas to 3D components.
III Year Edgecam Edgecam is market-leading CAD/CAM software for CNC programming. With unparalleled ease of use and intelligent toolpath generation, it’s the only CAD/CAM system you’ll need for 3D milling, mill-turn machining, and multi-axis machining. To learn more about Edgecam
The majour goal is to make use of the software to create ideas for genetrating the tool path and manual programms for the mechanical components in CNC machines.
Solidworks SOLIDWORKS Simulation is a powerful, easy-to-use design analysis and optimization software fully embedded within SOLIDWORKS® software. SOLIDWORKS Simulation is ideal for engineers who need analysis, but are not specialists in finite element analysis (FEA).
The goal of this course is to teach you how to use SOLIDWORKS Conceptual Design to create, capture and evaluate concept designs prior to physical prototyping and detail design.
IV Year Ansys ANSYS has a whole set of products for students to perform simulation of structural aspects of a single product or complex interactions of subsystems. It will help you understand how products would work not only in ideal environments but also changing users environments or during unexpected consumer usage.
By utilizating this software, students can understand in such a manner like how to create an optimized mechanical component design and performance of the component in real time enviroment to avoid the cost of product failure.
Hence, virtual engineering simulation is increasingly preferred for the mechanical engineering students, Knowing how to do it is an important engineering software skill.
Catia CATIA is the only solution capable of addressing the complete product development process, from product concept specification through product-in-service, in a fully integrated and associative manner.
Based on an open, scalable architecture, it facilitates true collaborative engineering across the multidisciplinary extended enterprise, including style and form design, mechanical design and equipment and systems engineering, managing digital mock-ups, machining, analysis, and simulation.
 CATIA is found in a variety of industries throughout the world. Some of these industries include; Aerospace, Appliances, Architecture, Automotive, Construction, Consumer Goods, Electronics, Medical, Furniture, Machinery, Mold and Die, and Shipbuilding.
