NASSCOM Partners With Autodesk


With a focus on bridging employment gaps within the industry NASSCOM has partnered with Autodesk, a world leader in 3D design technology, with a new standardized courseware ‘Product Design Engineer – Mechanical’, so as to enhance skill in this field. This courseware will empower students in India with the required competencies at the entry level within the larger occupation of Product Engineering Design in the Engineering Research & Development (ERD) sub-sector of the industry. This courseware will help create a skilled talent pool, trained on global standards, with the ability to usher in a design-led future of making things.

To ensure the creation of an academic course that is both relevant and viable, NASSCOM partnered with key industry stakeholders, namely, ANSYS, Autodesk, Geometric, Imaginarium, JCB, L&T Technology Services, SQS, Tata Technologies and TCS. Their inputs have significantly enhanced the design of the curriculum and courseware, which also addresses the need for faculty support, and seeks to achieve this by acquainting trainers with the latest advancements in pedagogy.

Mr. Pradeep Nair, Managing Director Autodesk India & SAARC, said, “The manufacturing sector in India is evolving and making rapid strides towards the future. Students and professionals need to possess the relevant technology skills that can enable them to be industry-ready and capable of driving innovation in product design and engineering. Fusion 360 is a highly advanced design tool that combines industrial and mechanical design, collaboration, and machining in a single package. The courseware based on Fusion 360 will not only up-skill the students but also enable them to dovetail into the evolving requirements of the manufacturing sector in India. Through our collaboration with NASSCOM and IT-ITeS Sector Skill Council NASSCOM, we aim to contribute in upskilling the huge talent pool in India.”

Mr. R. Chandrashekhar, President NASSCOM, said “Through this tie-up we hope to provide Indian students an opportunity to upgrade their knowledge in the domain and be at par with global industry standards. NASSCOM is confident that this course will help enhance the skills of professionals in the industry making them market ready.”
