What will I Learn IN M.E CAD / CAM?

M.E. CAD/CAM or Master of Engineering in CAD/CAM is a two-year postgraduate Engineering program. CAD (Computer-Aided Design) provides a convenient means to create designs for almost every engineering discipline. It can be used for architectural design, landscape design, interior design, civil and surveying, mechanical design, electrical engineering, plant design, industrial design, duct design, electronic circuit design, plumbing design, textile design, and product design. CAM (Computer-aided manufacturing) is the use of computer-based software tools that assist engineers and machinists in manufacturing or prototyping product components. CAM is a programming tool that makes it possible to manufacture physical models using computer-aided design (CAD) programs. CAM creates real-life versions of components designed within a software package. The course provides knowledge and skill development in applying computer and scientific principles related to solving engineering and manufacturing problems.
