Based in Boston, USA, Fastway Engineering delivers innovative project-based curricula in a wide range of CAD and CAE applications. With an agnostic approach, the instructor-led, web-based training focuses less on the WHAT, and more on the HOW and the WHY. Class discussions cover a broad range of topics from theory and experimentation to strategy and time management.

Whether it’s a full classroom or one-on-one, on-site or online, Fastway Engineering teaches designers how to become better decision makers.
Fastway Engineering merges the best practices and latest software by partnering directly with CAD and CAE Software companies, Academia, and Industry. Specializing in creating custom training solutions for clients, Fastway Engineering also does projects in Design and Analysis.

Fastway Engineering helps Designers, Engineers, Makers, and Manufacturers climb up the learning curve as FAST as possible.
