UofSC’s McNair Advance to offer courses in Charleston

The University of South Carolina’s McNair Center for Aerospace is offering advanced industrial engineering design certification courses in Charleston beginning later this month.

The CATIA software certification courses are part of the new McNair Advance initiative and are offered through an exclusive licensing agreement with French company Dassault Systèmes. CATIA, which stands for “computer aided three-dimensional interactive application,” is widely used in the automotive, aerospace and robotics industries and allows designers to create highly detailed, computer-generated 3D models.

McNair is one of the only two University Dassault Systemes Certified Education Partners in the U.S. The weeklong courses will be taught at the Darla Moore School of Business Market Street building in the heart of historic Charleston.

In addition to the CATIA courses, future McNair Advance course offerings are being developed to serve the needs of industry partners and those looking to boost their career marketability.

“There is a great demand for training current and potential employees in state-of-the-art solutions technologies that are being used by major industry players,” said Ramy Harik, assistant professor of aerospace computer-aided design and manufacturing at Carolina and program director of McNair Advance.
