This is a course on the computerised design of patterns using a number of specific programs. The use of CAD (Computer Aided Design) has brought about considerable innovations in the working system of the pattern making office. Operators have the impression that they are working with their own patterns and products, with all the advantages afforded by use of PCs: speed, reliability, filing capacity and organisation.
The INDUSTRIAL PATTERN MAKER (FABRICS AND APPAREL) CAD OPERATOR is thus a pattern maker with I.T. skills who carried out the model making process on a computer instead of on paper.


In recent years, a great many clothing manufacturing companies and fashion houses have adopted CAD systems for pattern making; consequently the demand for young people with I.T skills has increased. Therefore, knowledge of CAD for Industrial Pattern Making (Fabrics & Apparel) has become a compulsory requisite
