What you’ll learn

Starting with Altium Designer – Free Udemy Courses

  • During this course, you will design a simple board. After you finish this course, you will be able to continue to explore Altium Designer by yourself or you can continue to learn through more advanced Altium Designer courses.


  • You will need Altium Designer software, ideally AD18 or higher. No previous Altium Designer knowledge is required.


Altium Designer is one of the most popular and frequently used CAD software for the schematic design and PCB Layout. If you are planning to become a professional hardware design engineer, if you are moving to Altium Designer from different software or if you have never designed any board before and you would like to learn it, this course will help you.

Go through the complete design process of a simple board and learn

– Draw schematic

– Create schematic symbol and footprint libraries

– Route your PCB and do the layout

– Generate the essential documents needed to manufacture your PCB

The goal of this course

The main goal of this course is to go through a complete board design process (Schematic + Libraries + PCB + Documentation), and this way to show, demonstrate and practice all the essential Altium Designer features which are also used to create more complex and advanced boards.

Content and Overview

You will start with creating schematic symbols. After all, symbols are finished, you will learn how to draw a schematic, modify it, how update your schematic symbol library and how create footprints. You will learn how to transfer your schematic into PCB, and how to do layout and by the end of the course you will generate all the essential manufacturing documents.

In this course you will learn how to:

– Draw schematic, update schematic and annotate schematic

– Create components, draw schematic symbols and footprints

– Place components into your PCB

– Route simple PCB

– Create a 3D model of your board

– Create board variants with different components fitted / not fitted

– Create a Bill of Material (BOM)

– Create assembly drawings showing the position of components on the board

– Generate Gerbers, Pick and Place, Drill file, and other files needed for manufacturing

Who this course is for:

  • College / University students: In this course, you will learn all the essential features of Altium Designer and you will be able to continue using this software by yourself.
  • Junior / Senior hardware design engineers who are new in Altium: This course will help you to speed up the learning process. You will go through the complete design process of a board and after this course, you will know all the most important features which you need to start using the software.
  • Beginners, and Hobbyists: This is a step-by-step course. You can simply follow the videos even if you have never designed any boards before. Once you finish this course, you will be able to design your simple boards.
  • Everyone moving from previous Altium Designer versions: This course helps you to find the old features located in new places and explains how some new changes in the Altium work.
