This qualification takes a more advanced look into Computer Aided Design (CAD) to assist in the creation, modification, analysis, or optimisation of a design through the use of three dimensional (3D) software. Students will use SolidWorks 3D CAD software to generate and edit advanced models/assemblies using data driven parameters, create complex drawings including annotations using multiple view layouts. You will also be creating and modifying existing 3D objects, either surfaces or solids, at any position within three-dimensional space.
Dates and Times
The level 3 Certificate comprises any two of three available Level 3 units. At York College we are offering only two. A third unit, “Using 2D Computer Aided Design Software” is available and if you already have this and want to attend just one of these units then please contact the College for details.
Exams and Assessments
Assessment for each unit is by way of a short (three questions) written test and two timed assessed tasks to check your knowledge. Each of the practical assessments have a duration of approximately 3.5 hours.
How you can Progress
This provides learners with the skills and knowledge required for employment as a designer or draughts person or progress onto further learning in preparation for entry into the Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering sector.
Learners could progress onto an advanced and/or higher apprenticeship in Engineering or onto further learning through other qualifications such as the City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma in Engineering (QCF) or the City & Guilds Level 4 Diploma in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering.
