Creo, the shorthand name for Creo Parametric, (formerly known as Pro Engineer) is a powerful and intuitive3D CAD software optimized to address the challenges organizations face as they design, analyze, and share information with downstream partners.
Developed by PTC, the original pioneers of parametric CAD, Creo is a powerful foundational software supporting an integrated family of product design tools used by thousands of manufacturers worldwide.
The Creo family of design applications, modules, and extension speak a common language, meet the needs of different stakeholders, and truly combine parametric and direct modeling techniques. Creo helps build bridges instead of barriers between you, your ideas, your teammates, your partners, and your customers.
Creo Parametric 3D CAD software can easily be customized and extended through the addition of modules and extensions, but the product family also contains stand-alone purpose build design applications such as Creo Simulate, Creo Layout, Creo Options Modeler. Each stand-alone app serves a different purpose in the product development process.
From concept to design to analysis, to effectively sharing your information with downstream partners (such as manufacturing and technical publications), Creo is a rock-solid foundation for any design group. It supports the needs of modern manufacturing and product development organizations.

Planning for a future career can be a daunting task for many students, especially when there are so many paths to choose from. Furthermore, it is not always clear what skills are required to set yourself apart from other job applicants.
For over 30 years, Creo has remained the standard product design and development software across a variety of industries for parametric modeling, simulation/analysis, and product documentation. Learning Creo is one way to give yourself an edge on the competition in almost any industry you decide to pursue. Everyone knows that Creo is an amazing tool for product design, but did you ever consider that someone has to design the machinery that makes the products? In their work optimizing and improving systems, industrial engineers often use CAD and 3D printing to create prototypes quickly for use as a proof of concept.
