Diploma, Certificate, On Campus
The Engineering Design curriculum prepares students to apply technical skills and advanced computer software and hardware to create working drawings, graphic representations and computer simulations for mechanical and industrial designs. Includes instruction in engineering graphics, specification interpretation, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, drafting calculations, two dimensional and three dimensional engineering design, solids modeling, engineering animation, computer-aided drafting (CAD), computer-aided design (CADD)and manufacturing materials and processes. Graduates should qualify for employment in mechanical areas such as manufacturing, fabrication, research and development, and service industries.
These curriculums are designed to prepare students through the study and application of principles from mathematics, natural sciences, and technology and applied processes based on these subjects. Course work includes mathematics, natural sciences, engineering sciences and technology.
Graduates should qualify to obtain occupations such as technical service providers, engineering technicians, CAD systems managers, industrial and technology managers, research technicians and graphic technicians.
This course introduces computer concepts, including fundamental functions and operations of the computer. Topics include identification of hardware components, basic computer operations, security issues, and use of software applications. Upon completion, students should be able to demonstrate an understanding of the role and function of computers and use the computer to solve problems.
This course introduces extended CAD applications. Emphasis is placed upon intermediate applications of CAD skills. Upon completion, students should be able to use extended CAD applications to generate and manage drawings.Requisites:
This course is an introduction to basic three-dimensional solid modeling and design software. Topics include basic design, creation, editing, rendering and analysis of solid models, and creation of multiview drawings. Upon completion, students should be able to use design techniques to create, edit, render and generate a multiview drawing.
