      Catia is used by Large corporations like aerospace or automobiles. If those are the areas you would like to work then learn Catia.
      Otherwise Creo (Pro/E) is used by more companies.
      In your career you will have the opportunity to learn many CAD packages. Once you are familiar with one parametric modeler, the others can be learned quickly. Spend more time learning the core subjects of mechanical engineering like solid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, Statics and dynamics.

      Look at the market you want to serve. Don't forget that SolidWorks and Inventor are even more widely used; especially in consumer and industrial products, as well as machine design. The medical and pharmaceutical industries is also big on ProE/Creo.

      There are lots of others out there but generally none of the schools I've see teach these.

      Another thing to learn the basics of will also be PLM/PDM (Product Life-cycle/Data Management). In any environment knowing how to use these tools will improve your overall skill and saleability.

      I have to agree with Erich. I am a fan of Creo, started out with the first version of Wildfire. I have also used Auto CAD, Inventor, UG, Solid Works, as well as a few others. My current employer uses UG. As he mentioned, once you know one, all the others are easy to assimilate. Getting to know the fundamentals is more important.

      I recommend you to start looking for jobs and see what are their selection criteria, as far as i know catia is more industrial design software and is used by probably 10% of the industry, while inventor or soldidworks even revit (air conditioning) are highly used. As well the old autocad is very useful for big machinery.
