Development of technologies used to ensure production processes, especially in engineering production requires a change in the system of teaching at secondary vocational schools and universities. Computer skills have become an essential literacy of the contemporary society and the rapid development of software to support production requires careful and detailed preparation of students in order to withstand the competitive environment of the labour market. This contribution presents the authors´ own experiences and illustrates the current state in methodological provision of education in those subjects that were added into the curricula based on the demands of practice. They present results of the research which takes part in the dissertation topic dealing with teaching CADCAM systems. Based on the findings they analyze the current situation in teaching CAD-CAM systems at secondary schools and universities. One of the crucial conclusions shows the lack of relevant study material. According to the recommendation for practice, it is necessary to begin to approach this issue much more responsibly and systematically.

Keywords: CAD, CAM, manufacturing processes, computer skills, software support, programming, educational standards, teaching process
