AllyCAD in Education

DOE Workshop

The National Department of Education recently conducted a one week orientation workshop on the new practical assessment tasks in the Engineering Graphics & Design and Civil Technology school curriculum. Educational representatives from the Western Cape, Northern and Eastern Cape, Kwa-Zulu Natal, Free State and Gauteng attended the orientation.

At the end of the training workshop, the group received a two hour demonstration on AllyCAD which was examined at length against the practical assessment requirements. The program was found to be suitable and future follow up talks have been arranged with the Chief Education Specialist at National Level. For more information, contact Brett Murray on tel: (021) 701-1850 or email In the picture - attendees at the National Department of Education Orientation Workshop.

"About three years ago we did everything by hand and spent many hours manually shading the various soil types and roads onto the maps. With AllyCAD it's so easy to update a map with changes and the program has made our lives a lot simpler."
