Course detail

Automotive industry CAD

FSI-QC0Acad. year: 2023/2024

The course enables the acquisition of all the necessary information for basic mastery of design work on the computer in the Creo Parametric system. The student will learn to create 3D models in an optimal way. He will gain experience in the field of reverse engineering, model modifications and possible export of 3D data for 3D printing or for purposes of computational modeling.

Number of ECTS credits


Mode of study

Not applicable.

Entry knowledge

Basic knowledge of CAD systems, ability to design work.

Rules for evaluation and completion of the course

The course-unit credit award is conditional on active participation in the exercises, where the ability to design work in the Creo Parametric software is continuously checked.



Attendance in exercises is compulsory, participation is checked by the teacher.


The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the approach to modeling in basic modules in the Creo Parametric environment.

A graduate of the course is able to work in basic modules within the Creo Parametric environment. He is able to choose the optimal modeling procedure according to the established rules. The graduate can choose a strategically appropriate approach within tasks in the field of reverse engineering.
