De Anza's CAD Program


The DMT “CAD” (formaly CDI) Department at De Anza College currently offers a variety of Creo Parametric (Pro/ENGINEER), SolidWorks and GD&T classes.
   Since 1984 the CAD program has evolved to meet the changing needs of the local Silicon Valley engineering and design firms. Over 10,000 students and professionals have been trained. Creo Parametric (formerly Pro/ENGINEER), and SolidWorks courses are scheduled as on-campus and distance learning. Since the lectures are recorded, you can take the classes from anywhere you have an internet connection and watch the lecture as needed. All CAD software is available as a free download from PTC Creo Parametric or SolidWorks in the form of a Student Edition.  

Classes are 4-units each- 31.00 per unit plus registration fees, etc.



DMT is part of Business/Computer Systems Division
