About Course

CAE Literacy in Structural Design and Analysis is a job enabled course that is built conforming to national occupations standards defined in the quality pack (NSQF level 7 ) that complies with the guidelines of sector skill council of NASSCOM. The recruitment facilitation is a part of the course certification process.

Course design

In the era of Industrial internet of things and digital twin technology, the skill definition of a structural designer and an analyst for product development has undergone a paradigm shift. In this context, the course adopts a unique approach of building generalised proficiency in structural design and analysis with fundamental focus on stress and vibration for generalised mechanical design (aero, auto and general mechanical industry). The allied aspects of engineering design concept sketching, material selection, system design manufacture, assembly, reliability and sensitivity analysis are also addressed from a young designer /analyst perspective.

Course audience

CAE Literacy in Structural Design and Analysis is a course that is designed to address the requirements of a new product development. Therefore the course is ideal for highly motivated engineering students, research scholars and faculty who intend to take up engineering consultation. One of the unique features of the course is the trait evaluation. The traits evaluation such as visualisation, designer’s aptitude and critical thinking is perhaps the first such kind of evaluation in the country, which helps recruiters select the best engineers. Though the course is far advanced when compared to challenges of competitive exams such as GATE, IES and others, the concept maturity gained via the course helps manage these exams with great ease.

Course LRS (learning record store) system and certification.

The course has a state of the art learning measurement system. The system provides several performance metrics that are crucial to determine the quality of performance. The metrics include attempt history, relative performance (pan India), skill definition based on credits achieved. The LRS also monitors course attendance. Students, mentors and recruiters are provided separate logins to enable them to track different parameters of interest. Successful candidates are provided certification with detailed performance metrics. If the candidates wish to used employment facilitation, their resumes are shared with potential recruiters with all performance metrics.
