AutoCAD Training in Nepal

AutoCAD is a 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 a simple diagram/drawing to managing the entire set of drawings to create architecturally sound and attractive presentations. It is a widely used tool in the mechanical and civil engineering, and architecture sectors making it the world's no.1 computer-aided design.

IT Training Nepal has been providing AutoCAD 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. A student should be able to utilize basic drafting functions in AutoCAD and other design-related software. This is furnished by providing students with practical knowledge to students so that they will be able to develop skills and methods to recognize the best tool for a particular task and to use that tool efficiently to accomplish the task.
