In recent years the author has been developing and teaching computer aided engineering courses using the Pro/ENGINEER and I-DEAS software systems. This has been a very demanding yet highly rewarding endeavor. The paper discusses one such CAE course. In a semester long I-DEAS-based course the students are brought from the basics to a level where they are comfortable tackling typical real life engineering, both design and analysis, projects which require use of high end software for computer aided engineering. The benefits to the students of taking such a CAE I-DEAS-based course are discussed.
