Since 1998 the author has been developing and teaching computer aided design and computer aided engineering courses intended for mechanical engineering students using the Pro/ENGINEER and I-DEAS software systems. An outline of one of these courses is given and the experience related to another such course is discussed in detail. Students find these courses challenging and enjoyable. The success rate has regularly been very high. By taking such CAD/CAE courses and learning these widely used industry-standard, high-end software systems the students gain valuable experience directly applicable as they join the workforce. The participating students have regularly rated these courses among the most popular ones. The paper discusses the author’s experiences in developing and teaching courses in CAD and CAE, which utilize high-end software. It is intended to provide two examples of successful blends of theoretical and practical topics that have worked very well.
