Hi all! I am happy to find this very informative forum! I have graduated with a degree in Production Engineering and Management and I am interested to gain more knowledge in CAD and work as a Design Engineer. While in University I had a CAD course where I learned to use Pro/E, but that's all. The question is 'How can I master my skills, and what certificate or degree do I need so to be a competitive design engineer?' I have seen that the leaders in the industry provide training courses on Solidworks, Pro/E, Inventor, CATIA, etc... however these courses are extremely expensive and last only a few days... On the other hand universities offer masters on design engineering, but most of the times are more theoretical than practical. What are the skills the employers ask for, how can I develop these skills and what kind of certificates are good for my CV? Thanks in advace!
