Last Month, ADCC International East Africa Ltd. held CAD and GIS software demo sessions at the University of Nairobi’s, School of the Built Environment.
The demo sessions were aimed at providing students with an insight on the importance and usage of such software in the building, design, construction and engineering fields. In attendance was the ADCC managing director, Mr. Amit Rathi and his technicians Mohit Maringati and Ankur Singh. On top of the demo sessions agenda, was the emphasis on the need for students to register for the CAD applications training program that ADCC was offering in partnership with the University of Nairobi. Mr. Amit Rathi outlined the benefits of the training program: as being
- Customized to the students’ requirements at a subsidized cost,
- Situated at a convenient training location within the University
- Training and certification.
- A stepping stone within the current tech-based job market. The need to learn CAD and GIS applications is paramount; it is no longer an option but a necessity.
The demonstration was elaborate with some showcasing various steps towards achieving proper CAD and GIS outputs, others giving information on various software that are being developed for the current industry and others that have been developing with the industry. For those who attended the sessions, the response was quite satisfactory as they got a chance to enquire more and get answers. Some questions were aimed at finding out about the acquisition of properly licensed software, how to register for the training program, career opportunities for those who have CAD and GIS certification and most importantly on how much the course would cost them.
This was definitely an exciting experience for most students as it was a first of its kind at the University of Nairobi. More sessions are to be organized in the coming months as the Training program commenced on October 1st 2014 for the already registered batch.
Registration is currently ongoing.For more information contact:
