MET 1231 Introduction to Engineering Design Using 3D CAD

Application of the process of design and the interpretation of engineering drawings. Includes design development, product development, and problem solution, principles of orthographic projection, drafting symbols, surface finish symbols, and geometric dimensioning and tolerancing symbols. Student is exposed to parametric 3D CAD modeling for the purpose of creating parts and assemblies and to properly dimension and detail drawings to effectively communicate design intent. Three classroom, three lab hours per week.

Prerequisites: None

Course Outcomes
  • Apply time management skills and teaming to complete projects.
