- VI. Catalog Course Description
- This course introduces students to the engineering design process through two- and three- dimensional modeling, drawing, computer-aided design (CAD), and rapid prototyping. This course emphasizes a design-driven curriculum involving team-based investigations and solutions of reverse engineering problems using free-hand, CAD software, and rapid prototyping techniques.
- VII. Required Course Content and Direction
Course Learning Goals
- apply the engineering design process;
- apply graphical drawing, pictorial representation, computer-aided design (CAD), and rapid prototyping techniques as a quick and specific means of visualization and communications, and to the representation of engineering applications;
- investigate team-based engineering design applications and reverse engineering problems requiring the adaptation of an existing design; and
- analyze the economic, societal, and ethical responsibilities of a professional engineer.
Planned Sequence of Topics and/or Learning Activities
The following topics are presented:
- discussion and analysis of the engineering design process
- professional aspects of engineering design and drawing: meanings of terms, symbols, and conventional practices
- analysis and implementation of free-hand sketching and pictorial methods of representation including orthographic, isometric, oblique, and auxiliary views
- techniques of graphical, three-dimensional descriptive geometry, both in theory and practice in the analysis and solution of reverse engineering problems and engineering applications using free-hand and computer-aided engineering software
- investigation and solution of an engineering design application in a team environment using free-hand and computer-aided design and analysis software, and rapid prototyping techniques in order to analyze and explain the economic, societal, environmental, and ethical responsibilities of a professional engineer
