- Duration120 Hours
- PrerequisitesMust have/be pursuing a degree or diploma in Mechanical discipline
This Diploma Program, offered by TIET and CADCIM Technologies, USA, is designed for the students in mechanical
disciplines to help them understand the product designing process and acquire skills required to ideate, design,
and develop a practically viable product. It will also help them in learning real-world industry practices and
processes involved in manufacturing, thereby making them industry-ready and productive from day one. The courses
offered in this program will include explanation of the basic concepts, tools and techniques to advance concepts
and technologies involved in the product development process, all important tools and their real-world applications
in conformity with widely accepted ISO standards, GD&T, and standard practices followed in the manufacturing
processes in industry.
Key Features of the Program
- The training will be provided by the faculty who have long been associated with industry and have a good understanding of teaching pedagogy.
- The student will be provided a chance to visit an industrial site to see the live applications of the software learned.
- The training will be provided on the latest software packages.
- The students will be provided placement guidance on successful completion of the course.
- A mock interview/test will be conducted in professional settings to give you an idea of what you
need to do while appearing for a job interview. Industry professionals will be a part of it and will
give you necessary feedback on it so that you practice and prepare for the real job interview.
- An assessment test will be conducted to evaluate the students and provide feedback.
- Students will be encouraged to create an online portfolio showcasing their profile with links
- TIET will provide an internship opportunity to meritorious students after completion of the
- The students will be provided assistance in preparing professional resume to make it stand out and
to help them find their dream job.

Drafting Using Autodesk AutoCAD
The topics covered are mentioned below. You will be assigned various projects for better understanding of the concepts and tools learned.
- Understanding AutoCAD tools
- Generating 2D drawings
- Creating orthographic views
- Creating isometric view
- Creating general arrangement (GA) drawings
- Detailing & drafting
After completion of the topics of this module, the students will be assigned various projects to work on
for better understanding of the concepts and tools learned. Some of the projects will be done under the
guidance of the instructor and, and the others, individually by the students themselves.
In addition to AutoCAD software, the students will learn the following designing concepts:
- Fundamentals of design
