CAD / CAM LAB

Computer-Aided-Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided-Manufacturing (CAM) were developed in order to shorten the process of designing and manufacturing. The main objective of this laboratory is to provide the undergraduate and post-graduate students with the knowledge and techniques of the research and application of CAD/CAM. The CAD/CAM center has been created exclusively to cater training of all students in the latest CAD and CAM software’s. In addition, the CAD/CAM resources are utilized in undergraduate and post-graduated project works and research work. At the end of each semester, under the continuing education program students were given training in new software packages introduced.
