CADMATIC empowers students at the Institute of Shipbuilding Technology

As the only institute in India that has been established and managed by a group of industries, The Institute of Shipbuilding Technology in Goa, India, has been teaching CADMATIC successfully to final year undergraduate students. By doing this, the institute can provide industries with well-trained technical manpower to suit their requirements.

The institute started using CADMATIC in 2016. CADMATIC is being taught to final year undergraduate students as part of practical instruction for Computer Application in Ship Design (CASD). The CASD subject is introduced as an elective subject in the final year with a teaching load of 32 hours of theory and a practical load of 64 hours in hull and outfitting modules.

For detail design in the hull module, students are provided with 2D drawings of an aft engine room block for modelling. The institute emphasizes the topological sequence of drawings. Students are able to compare the real hull viewer model with the model they created.

CADMATIC adds value

As the shipbuilding industry is continuously developing and reshaping, the demand for 3D ship design software is growing rapidly. Students from shipbuilding engineering programs not only need to understand the ship structures and terminologies, but also require the ability to apply their knowledge in designing these structures. The institute selected CADMATIC due to is its user-friendliness and strong after-sales support.

According to Naresh Naik, a lecturer in Mechanical Engineering at the institute, CADMATIC really assists them in teaching the Ship Construction Technology subject, especially by showing the 3D model in the hull viewer.“Previously, without CADMATIC use, students found it difficult to visualize and imagine the structural parts and their end connections.”

Shubham Shivolkar, a final year student in Shipbuilding Engineering, feels that he benefits most from CADMATIC Hull in creating section views, generating plates with stiffeners and other attributes like holes and flanges. “CADMATIC Outfitting makes it easy to quickly create the library to route pipes. While I am routing pipe equipment and fittings, I can place them simultaneously from the library,” says Shubham.

CADMATIC empowers students

Satish Paliencar from HOD Shipbuilding indicates that students who want to make career in ship design develop substantially with the help of CADMATIC. “CADMATIC helps to develop our students’ future prospects. Some final year students want to pursue a career in design or higher studies after modelling in CADMATIC for some design projects. CADMATIC offers students opportunities to demonstrate what they have learned through a realistic model of their project work,” explains Naresh.

Shubham Shivolkar also feels that CADMATIC has made a positive contribution to his future career prospects.“Since we got a chance to experience CADMATIC, it is easy now to work in the design field. Besides, it is an advantage in real time projects in the ship building industry.”
