For the first time in India, GIA India has developed the Comprehensive CAD/CAM for Jewellery Certificate Programme. This seven-week programme, which begins on June 26, 2023, prepares students for CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing) jobs.
“The introduction of the Comprehensive CAD/CAM for Jewellery Certificate programme in India marks an important milestone for GIA India,” stated Sriram Natarajan, Managing Director of GIA India. Our education initiatives turn in-depth information into practical skills, allowing us to teach and train the future generation of jewellery leaders and professionals.”
Students who complete the study will receive the GIA Comprehensive CAD/CAM for Jewellery Certificate, which will prepare them for professions in jewellery design, product development, and as CAD technicians.
“The introduction of the Comprehensive CAD/CAM for Jewellery Certificate programme in India is an important step in equipping students with the necessary skills to become professionals in this field, ensuring that they stay relevant and competitive in the ever-evolving jewellery industry,” said Apoorva Deshingkar, Senior Director – Education and Market Development, GIA India. The Comprehensive CAD/CAM training has continued to pique the attention of the Indian gem and jewellery sector; after collecting their input, we are glad to present the programme in India. With CAD/CAM being such an important talent in the jewellery industry, this programme offers a fantastic opportunity for individuals to enhance their careers.”
The GIA Comprehensive CAD/CAM for Jewellery Certificate Programme is an excellent complement to GIA‘s Jewellery Design programme, but it can also be followed alone. “We firmly believe that by providing a combination of manual design and CAD/CAM in India, there will be a talent pool of well-rounded jewellery design professionals in the industry,” Apoorva remarked.
