• Courses on CAD / CAM / FEA / CFD, AU-FRG Institute for CAD/CAM, a premier centre of Anna University, conducts high quality training programmes in the field of CAD/CAM/CAE for the benefit of working engineers and engineering graduates. The following are the courses being offered for the engineering graduates and industrial personnel as per the demand / based on the request. In order to extend these training programmes to the students of engineering colleges and to enrich their professional skill to suit the current Industrial / R&D requirements, exclusive student training programmes are conducted during the summer / winter vacation with fee concession.

Courses Offered


  • CAD or computer-aided design and drafting (CADD), is the use of computer technology for design and design documentation. CAD software replaces manual drafting with an automated process. These programs can help you explore design ideas, visualize concepts through photorealistic renderings, and simulate how a design will perform in the real world.
  • CAD software is used to increase the productivity of the designer, improve the quality of design, improve communications through documentation, and to create a database for manufacturing.
  • CAD is an important industrial art extensively used in many applications, including automotive, shipbuilding, and aerospace industries, industrial and architectural design and many more.
  • CAD has become an especially important technology within the scope of computer-aided technologies, with benefits such as lower product development costs and a greatly shortened design cycle. CAD enables designers to layout and develops work on screen, print it out and save it for future editing.

  • Computational fluid dynamics, usually abbreviated as CFD, is a branch of fluid mechanics that uses numerical analysis and algorithms to solve and analyze problems that involve fluid flows. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is the use of applied mathematics, physics and computational software to visualize how a gas or liquid flows -- as well as how the gas or liquid affects objects as it flows past. Computational fluid dynamics describes how the velocity, pressure, temperature, and density of a moving fluid are related.
