Main Question or Discussion Point
As an entry-level engineer coming out of school, how important is it to have some familiarity with a CAD program? Do companies expect you to have some knowledge of a CAD program before hiring, or will they train a new engineer on a CAD package from scratch? I'm asking this because I was never exposed to a CAD package as an undergraduate (I'm an AE grad student with a B.S. in Physics), and am thinking about pursuing a certification in CATIA or AutoCAD on my spare time.
