Course Information

  • Duration20 Hours (Online/Offline)


This course is designed to help students learn plant layout design using AutoCAD Plant 3D software. It is extensively used in industry to create and modify P&IDs and 3D models of process plants. Built on AutoCAD platform, this software allows you to carry out design process in a project based manner. In this course, the students will get in-depth knowledge of all important tools as well as their real world applications. In addition, students will be assigned a team project of their choice for better understanding of design intent and will also be required to make a portfolio of the work done.
