Course Overview

Autodesk AutoCAD is the industry standard for ACE (Architectural, Constructional and Engineering) computer-aided design. Proficiency in AutoCAD is pivotal in career development for those working in relevant fields.

SketchUp Pro is  a simple but powerful tool in 3D modeling, produce Accurate, detailed models and varies presentation like 3D rendering, 2D layout plan and even VR AR production.

The course aims at effective learning to produce results in the least possible time , covering 2D drafting, layout plan creation, output, and 3D modeling techniques. Participants will be able to apply practical skills learnt to their design work on course completion. They will receive the course diploma and also a certificate endorsed by Autodesk after satisfying attendance and assignment requirements.

On completion of this course, you will be able to:

Communicate by 2D and 3D graphics in a wide range of design field
Exchange data between 2 software AutoCAD and SketchUp
Collaborate with BIM data (such as IFC and integrate with Revit model)
AutoCAD Module
A Command base learning process let student can run and apply AutoCAD technique in a Full speed and compatible with multiple version. You can apply your skills but not limit to Architectural, construction drawings, Interior and Product design.

SketchUp Pro Module
You will understand how to intergrate AutoCAD drawings into SketchUp Pro, and build 3D model, apply styles and material, using Vray as a rendering tools for realistic presentation. Further you can link and collbrate your design data into BIM ready document such as IFC or link into Revit for coordination.

Course Features

  • AutoCAD is the world’s leading software in CAD technology. It is the standard tool of the ACE industry and widely used in different fields such as building, construction, engineering, interior, product and industrial design.
  • SketchUp is simple but powerful tool to bring your idea to 3D, documentation and connection to BIM
  • The course provides solid and thorough training on AutoCAD 2D Drafting and SketchUp 3D production. Course content covers from beginner to expert levels and from 2D to 3D. Students are fully equipped with up-to-date skills to enable them to handle job challenges on course completion.
  • You can choose PC or Mac classes to suit your training needs.
  • The course is CEF approved. All qualified Hong Kong adult residents are eligible for a maximum 80% course fee subsidy.
