I am a 33 yr old mechanical engineer with 6 years of experience. Iíve studied in the UK (Bsc and Msc awarded) and so far Iíve been working as a building services design engineer.
A friend of mine who has a solid experience in solidworks is willing to show me the software and I am determined to work hard in order to gain as much knowledge as I can.
Which is the average time that someone needs in order to be capable of using it in a satisfactory level?He told me about three months, but i consider that as a limited period of time.
After that do you thing that I will manage to put my self on the market and gain a job in the field, without having any working experience but just a portfolio of created projects?
Furthermore, which software do you consider as a stronger asset? Solidworks or Catia5?
Thanks for your time and for your answers. They are very crucial for me at that point of my life!
