The project-objective was to establish a national center for Computer Aided Design in India. The CAD Project, as it is called, has been fully established with installation of CAD hardware and software. The activities of the CAD Project are to conduct continuing education programmes, to develop CAD software for Indian engineering industry, and to offer consultancy services to industry in the area of CAD. CAD-P has been recognized as a premiere laboratory for CAD in India. It has already attracted considerable attention. Many engineers, designers, educationists and international experts had visited this facility. Professors Leroy Emkin (Georgia Tech), Gary Kinzel (Ohio State), Tony Ingraffea (Cornell), Don Riley (Minnesota) and John Abel (Cornell) visited CAD-P and served as Technical Consultants on behalf of UNDP. Dr. Dhande, as the Coordinator, directed a team of eight Research Engineers and six staff members.
