“I wanted to thank you for taking the time to teach me Pro Surface and ISDX last week during the surfacing class. I had an excellent time learning surfacing and I feel as though I will be using this tool more effectively and efficiently because of the class. I really liked your method of teaching and I feel as though I have retained and will be able to apply most of what I learned. It was a very enjoyable experience and I hope to be able to set up more training with DESIGN-ENGINE|EDUCATION soon…”
University Of Chicago
“I am a professor of astronomy and astrophysics at the University of Chicago. Several years ago, my research group began a project to build a far infrared camera for NASA’s Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA). We chose to develop the instrument using Pro/Engineer, a program for developing and analyzing 3-dimensional models of mechanical systems. This program is widely used by the aerospace industry. NASA and its contractors are using it to develop the SOFIA observatory itself. My group has built many instruments for previous NASA projects, but this is the first time we have used Pro/E…”
“The education I had with DESIGN-ENGINE|EDUCATION is unlike programs I had previously taken. The training was fast passed, and the small classes allowed for enough attention from the instructor and time on the software. The class was unique because it was less about just learning the tools and more about design using impressive surfacing software. For example, instead of building a surface based on shape alone, we looked at how light reflects on the shape as well. In class we worked with over 20 tutorials focusing on Pro/Surface and ISDX…”

“Bart Brejcha was singularly the best software trainer I have ever encountered. His brilliance and sensitivity as a teacher helped me get the most out of my training…”
“The Advanced Surface Training with Bart Brejcha was probably the most informative and useful class I’ve ever taken. I have used Pro/E exclusively since 1991 for companies like Mercury Marine, Motorola, CASE, Ariens Co., Harley-Davidson, and numerous others…”
“The course was very informative and I’m sure I learned more about free form surfacing modeling than if I had taken the course elsewhere. I have already imparted my new found knowledge to my colleagues who are now as equally excited about the future of ISDX as I am…”
“Design Engine provided me with the skill set to becoming employable with my Pro Engineer skills. Despite having a Bachelors degree in Engineering, without the proper software training, my skills were not marketable. I plan to further my employment prospects through more advanced Pro Engineer training, and Design Engine will be a resource for this training…”
“We attended training for Pro/Surface and ISDX at Atkinson Design, Mississauga, who was a wonderful host and provided great service and response to our training needs. Through them, we were lucky to have Bart Brejcha from DESIGN-ENGINE|EDUCATION as a trainer. If Bart cannot make you love surfacing, nobody can. We were impressed with his enthusiasm and original approach to training…”
“I am excited with my new position and would like to thank DESIGN-ENGINE|EDUCATION for the Pro/E training. If it weren’t for DESIGN-ENGINE|EDUCATION I might still be out of a job. The training offered is ideal for anyone entering the current job market. The best part of the training is not that your are taught how to use the program, but how to be an effective modeler.”
“I would like to personally thank you, as well as the DESIGN-ENGINE|EDUCATION staff, for the Pro/Engineer Wildfire course I attended in August ’04. Before attending a product design workshop I had no employment. Within two weeks, I had a job with a salary exceeding my previous position by over 20k.”

“The team at DESIGN-ENGINE|EDUCATION has a great knowledge of the design industry, and they are really up to speed on the tools of the trade, as well as the daily workflow of design. Conversations with the team were on colleague to colleague level, rather than an academic vs. real-world level. Bart Brejcha illustrated excellent familiarity with the design world, while also exhibiting a curiosity that was refreshing to see…”
“From my experience and from the response of students we have sent, DESIGN-ENGINE|EDUCATION of Chicago, Illinois is a top-tier provider of directly applicable training in the use and application of Pro/Engineer software. Pro/E is the preferred and overwhelmingly dominant engineering software platform for product design engineering..”
“This training offered by DESIGN-ENGINE|EDUCATION is hands on and in a short 3-week program our designers gained the knowledge to start developing parts. I also encourage and support our designers to continually go back for training and further their knowledge on new features that are being added to software…”
“As a note to someone outside the product design and engineering community: Pro/Engineer is the preeminent product definition software platform for mechanical product design engineering and it is a driver of the world economy as well as our own. A skilled engineer, speaking through this tool, can control milling machines in Asia, injection-molding machines in Singapore and stamping presses in Banglore…”

Alexander Lau – Industrial Designer
“In 2008, I started looking for an Advanced Pro/E Surface and ISDX training course. I was looking for more since I had already taken all the TC classes regarding these subjects and also worked as a teacher in Pro/E surfacing for a couple of years. I was looking for a place that could teach me about advanced surfacing, and not just “by the book training”. I started searching the web and found “Design-Engine” located in Chicago. Even though I live in Sweden, I found it worth the travel across the world to see if they were as skilled as their reputation stated. And yes, I was more than satisfied with the training. Perhaps just as important as the software knowledge transfer was the methods used to train and the additional knowledge I gained in surface development. Thanks Bart for teaching from a real world perspective!
So when I decided to take an Alias class in 2010, Design-Engine was an easy choice for me!! Joel Koster’s skills in Alias are worth a lot when it comes to teaching advanced surfacing. Every question I had, he could answer it without a blink.
The cost for the class, plus airfare was about the same price as a class in Sweden. Since Design-Engine has corporate discounts on hotels, its was actually cheaper for me to go to Chicago and take the class than to take it in Sweden.
I would like to thank Bart Brejcha for the high level Pro/ENGINEER training, Joel Koster for the great Alias class, and everyone at Design Engine for taking good care of me.”

“Just wanted to say “thanks again” for the training and hospitality Neil and I received last
week. The methods we’ve learned will certainly have a positive impact on our performance here at Schick.”
“Just taking a second to give some quick feedback.
Joel is great! The beginning of last week he gave me a great multi page printout showing basic key points for alias. It will come in handy once I get back to texas for reviewing stuff.
Joel also is great about helping me before class officially starts, and staying late to help me with things I get stuck on. I’m sure I’m moving a lot slower than most students he gets, the extra time he takes is appreciated. He has a great ability to show me general key elements for the programs, but also fine tune it for my specific needs.
I’m sure I’m a challenge as I’m not the norm student. I’m coming from way out in left field with no industrial design knowledge. His patience is appreciated. And at the same time he is great at pushing me.
All you guys have been great. I do appreciate the great lengths you, bart and joel have gone to in order to allow me this opportunity. My brain is a little fried from the learning, so I wanted to make absolutely sure you guys know I’m thankful.”

” We found this free-flowing training technique to be very user-friendly as well as very effective. We now feel much more confident not only in the creation and usage of surfacing in Pro-E, but in the general usage of the software as well. We would definitely recommend this training to others within the company. Further we would recommend the use of Design Engine for other software training because of the overall effectivity of their training method.”
Chad O’Connell – CNH
” We chose Design Engine because of their promise to deliver to HD a custom one week class that incorporated training in a design workflow that would utilize both Maya and Alias. DE delivered on that promise as the employees that attended the training were able to model in both sets of software before the week concluded. DE was very proactive seeking dialogue prior to the training to insure that HD would receive everything in the training they were seeking. I would highly recommend DE to anyone or any company looking for software training. We will be returning for further training at DE when the time permits and we look forward to it. A special thanks to Claudia and Joel who were are primary contact/trainer as they did a superb job fulfilling our needs. Thanks again.”
