I have mainly used CATIA at work, but recently tried a new program called OnShape. It was started by the founder of Solidworks and has some pretty high level people involved from the CAD industry. It is online, all heavy computing done on their end, and even runs on mobile devices. First part I designed was done on my iPad and linked to a friend with a 3D printer who handed me the finished part at work the next day, pretty cool. They have a trial version and subscriptions for professional users, with lots of learning material on their website.

Try OnShape (www.onshape.com), it was developed by the founder of Solidworks and runs online with all the computing done on their end. You can even design on an iPad and edit on your phone. I actually designed a part for my motorcycle entirely on my iPad and sent it to a 3D printer to confirm fit before machining the actual part.

Look up OnShape, it is a product of the founder of Solidworks. All the computing is done on their end and they even have an iOS version that is quite functional. Also lots of learning material on their website.

Autodesk Fusion 360 is really good. Coming from a CATIA background and compare it to Fusion 360, it is amazing. CAM is included, FEA as well, different CAD native file formats can be converted to Fusion 360 files with no issues. E.g you can import a step file and change it on the fly.
Really affordable, or for free if you comply to the rules. On and offline usage, storage in the cloud.

Check it out here. http://www.autodesk.com/products/fusion-360/overview
