Today's product development process is characterized by increasing complexity of products. Subsequently universities have to adapt and constantly improve the content of their courses to prepare the future graduates for the free market economy. An approach at Technische Universitaet Darmstadt to expand the scope of CAD education, is the introduction of a new one-week tutorial on shape design with Siemens NX. This paper will describe the teaching concept and its implementation. The concurrently submissions of the examinations with content from realistic industrial tasks play an important role during the course.
