Pro/ENGINEER Operator (BP/EP) Advanced Technical Certificate

Overview and Award Outcomes

Overview

The Pro/ENGINEER Operator Certificate is designed for people with a solid background in mechanical design and/or machining. The coursework is project based and emphasis will be placed on creating solid models, assemblies, and detail drawings.

Prerequisite: Graduation from or concurrent enrollment in a 2-year Engineering CAD or machining program or a minimum of 2 years of related work experience.

Award Outcomes

Capture design intent.

Create solid models.

Generate drawings from solid models and assemblies.

Apply tolerances to drawings.

Utilize Pro/ENGINEER software interface.

Career Opportunities

Most Pro/ENGINEER Operators work in the design or engineering departments of manufacturing facilities creating or changing parametric solid models, assemblies, and detail drawings according to an engineer`s specifications; however, career opportunities are not limited to engineering office jobs. Jobs in this field pay well but are difficult to obtain. Employers prefer students with machining and/or mechanical design experience.
