Course Outcomes

Modeling Techniques

1. Understand both surface and solid modeling techniques found in a modern commercial CAD package.

CAD Modeling - Basic Components

2. Create a CAD model of basic machine components and assemblies.

CAD Modeling - Average to Complex Components

3. Design and create CAD models of average to complex mechanical components.

Engineering Drawings - Standard

4. Create, read and understand engineering drawings composed of multiple views with standard dimensioning and tolerancing nomenclature.

Engineering Drawings - Geometric

5. Create, read and understand engineering drawings that contain geometric dimensioning, tolerancing symbology and mating parts fit.

Top-Down and Bottom-Up Design

6. Understand the approaches and processes used in component and assembly modeling, i.e. top-down and bottom-up design.


7. Collaborate with teammates to learn how to apply CAD tools to the modeling projects.

Product Design and Manufacturing Information

8. Prepare a design package for a real-world device to be manufactured in Me En 382.


9. Learn about design and engineering processes in a global context.
