Course description

AutoCAD for Civil and Structural Engineers

This course is designed as a wholly practical introduction to computer-aided design (CAD) for civil and structural engineers and allied professionals.

It will help you rapidly develop your skills from beginner to intermediate level, allowing you to work on your own project from start to finish.

To attend this course, you don’t need any prior experience, nor do you need to prepare or bring anything - it starts from level zero.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course is specifically for:

  • early career professionals in civil and structural professions and trades who wish to get ahead by acquiring on-demand CAD skills;
  • experienced civil and structural professionals with little or no experience in CAD; and
  • anyone considering going into the civil and structural fields who would like to have a feel for designing to see what it is all about.

Whilst the course is specifically designed for civil and structural engineers, the content is also suitable for anyone wanting to become a competent CAD user for general engineering purposes.
