Is solidwords or autodesk inventor a skill that's needed in the workplace for aerospace engineers?

Asked Kenosha, Wisconsin

I am an aerospace engineering student who knows how to use autodesk inventor but not solidworks. I was just wondering, how important is solidworks and inventor or any other computer-aided design (CAD) program to an aerospace engineer in the workforce?

Thanks!

The short answer is: Yes!

More than needed, it is essential. Engineers communicate designs via CAD and 2D drawings. You MUST be able to manage CAD tools like AutoCAD, SolidWorks and Creo to do their job.
