Design Engine

Empowering cad users and the future minds of tomorrow

What makes us different?

The instructors who teach at Design Engine are renowned for their industry expertise and professionalism. They are working designers and engineers who actually use the software they teach professionally, unlike many typical certified courses administered by software manufacturers.

Our students

Our aim is to bring together a sense of community among our fellow industry professionals. Since 1994 we’ve successfully trained over 2,000 designers and engineers from companies such as Motorola, Caterpillar, John Deere, Harley Davidson, and NASA.

What we teach

Unlike typical training organizations, Design Engine doesn’t simply teach the software packages, read to you from a book or lead you with menu clicks.  Instead, Design Engine helps organizations create or mature a natural exchange between design and engineering teams, ultimately teaching teams to utilize a mutual design language for greater understanding.
