CATIA is taught in thousands of academic institutions around the globe to prepare tomorrow's engineers.

CATIA® addresses all manufacturing organizations, from OEMs through their supply chains, to small independent producers.

Like any other CAD system, CATIA​​​​ can be used to design bolts and screws. But learning how to use Dassault Systèmes suite of products means much more for your students: teach them CATIA today, and they will be able to design and refine tomorrow's World, from daily used products like shampoo bottles to next-gen smartphones, electric cars and even sustainable aircrafts!

It takes all sorts of engineers to make a world. CATIA is the Swiss knife of industrial design. Once they knowhow to use it, your students are equipped with the most versatile, industry-agnostic 3D engineering tool, whatever their natural inclination and the professional journey on which they are about to embark.
