What will students learn in this course

Students will get an in depth knowledge of Functionality of AutoCAD Electrical software. Using this knowledge, students can create professional electrical control drawings.


The instructor starts right from the basics so there are no prerequisites. However, knowledge of AutoCAD is an added advantage.

Target Audience

Degree/Diploma holders and Professionals in electrical field


AutoCAD Electrical is the software of the AutoCAD suite which is intended to help control designers with the creation and modification of control systems. This software has extended features to automate control engineering tasks, such as building circuits, numbering wires, and creating bills.

For electrical engineers it's good for making circuit layout to powerplant layout. This module include electrical schematic components, automatic report generation, PLC I/O drawing for spreadsheet, and so on.

This course is basically designed to assist the engineering students and the practicing designers. Keeping in view the varied requirements of the students, this course covers a wide range of tools and features such as schematic drawings, Circuit Builder, panel drawings, parametric and non-parametric PLC modules, stand-alone PLC I/O points, ladder diagrams, point-to-point wiring diagrams, report generation, creation of symbols, and so on. On the completion of this course, students will be able to create electrical drawings easily and effectively.

Salient Features of this Course:
  1. A comprehensive course consisting of 106 video lectures that are organized in a pedagogical sequence.
  2. Detailed explanation of all AutoCAD Electrical commands and tools.
  3. Step-by-step instructions to guide the users through the learning process.
  4. Two projects at the end of the course to enable the users to applythe skills learned in the course
  5. Practice Test
  6. Certificate of Completion
