AutoCAD is software application that is essentially a computer aided design used for designing and drafting 2D and 3D drawings. It was first launched in 1982 as a desktop application and as a mobile web based application since 2010.
AutoCAD is used for various purposes from creating simple diagram/drawing to managing entire set of drawings to create architecturally sound and attractive presentations. It is widely used tool in mechanical and civil engineering, architecture sector making it world’s no.1 computer aided design.
IT Training Nepal has been providing Auto CAD training to students and professionals from various sectors who need to work with computer-aided design. The main objective of auto cad training is to develop proficiency in the use of Architectural / Engineering oriented computer application software. Student should be able to utilize basic drafting function in auto CAD and other design related software. This is furnished through providing students practical knowledge to student so that they will be able to develop skills and methods to recognize best tool for a particular task, and to use that tool efficiently to accomplish the task.
We follow the step-by-step approach to learn AutoCAD, starting with basic tools. Students will be given ample time and resources to master the basic skills like creating and editing simple drawing and then only we will move on to more advanced tools. Advance knowledge and practice tools like exploring efficiency tools, complex objects, and external reference, advance plotting will be discussed and practiced at length to develop sound theoretical and practical knowledge.
The objective of AutoCAD training is to create basic 2D and 3D drawings and design using AutoCAD software. This is a fundamental course; however, at this level too, learning AutoCAD is challenging one. So we have developed a model which uses theoretical knowledge and application of that knowledge. A wide variety of examples and practices are taken from real world working scenarios.
- Be able to use basic commands required in professional 2D and 3D drawing, design and drafting.
- Create dimensioned drawings.
- Use navigation menu, locate and apply features of AutoCAD.
- Explore and use efficiency tools, create complex objects, use advance plotting.
- Use tools and techniques for use and reuse of drawing and design.
- Plot diagram using appropriate tools.
Who can join Auto CAD?
This course has been especially designed for students and professional who need to work with AutoCAD for various architectural, design and drawing purposes. However, this course starts from fundamental base, so it is highly beneficial for all types of people who need or intend to work with AutoCAD.
- Students of various engineering disciplines
- Professionals intending to upgrade their knowledge
- Students appearing in certification exams of AutoCAD programs.
- Project manager, procurement officers who don’t have prior working knowledge of-computer-aided design
Prerequisites: Students enrolling in this course are expected to have sound working knowledge of Operating systems (MS Windows) and MS word. This is fundamental course for AutoCAD so basic knowledge of basic design methodology and terminology is preferred.

I was having difficulty in completing my 5th semester project as that involved extensive use of AutoCAD. One of friends suggested joining ITN and the training helped me not only to complete my project but it also boosted my understanding and knowledge of AutoCAD. I can now design and architecture different models of civil construction. I recommend IT Training Nepal wholeheartedly.
