Iam a student doing mechanical engg I want some advice in choosing a designing software to learn it would be verrry useful if u guzs would help me to figure this .....so plz tell me which software should learn to use .....

It depends on what you intend to do with it specifially.
If you are looking to use the software for some parametric engineering, which means that you have to know the exact measures for the part that you are modeling, than I suggest SolidWorks, PTC Creo, SolidEdge.
If you are in the more architectural type of engineering than I suggest Google Sketchup 14 (very underrated program in my opinion)
If you are looking to go more into design itself, than I suggest something like 3DSMax or inventor.
And if you are into the fine, sculptural character design than I suggest you try Mudbox or ZBrush.

One suggestion would be to start to have experience with Auto CAD 3D.
You find many difficulties in modeling because it is very artisanal its modeling.
This will help you create a lot of maturity.
Next would be an average Software Solid Works and Inventor.
Come a time that you even had missed something more al then go to the NX and Creo after.
Hope this helps.

I am Mecatronico engineer and tool designer.
You know here in Brazil we have to know a little of everything.
More every engineer should have the obligation to know calculate and sketch using calculator and ruler.
As we are in a modern world CAD tools / CAM and CAE are fundamental.
Try to learn an engineering simulation program a cosmos as initial and then the pro mechanica.
Soon a machining tool.

I hope I have helped you

Most of the industry are migrating form Catia to NX but most of the supplier are using Catia and NX both like Borgwarner, Johnson Controls, Mind Industry, JBM etc
1. ChryslerAutomotive-NX
2. Mercedes-NX
3.Maruti Suzuki-NX
4.Renault Nissan- Catia and UG both
5. General Motors-NX
6. Piaggio-NX
7.Ashok Leyland-Pro/E
8. Boeing is going to migrate from Catia to UG
9. Ford-Catia
10.BMW-Catia
11. Rolls Royce- Pro/E
etc. but I will recommend first you should learn NX then after you should learn Catia
