Engineering Computer-Aided Design and Tolerance Analysis

MET 2000 3 Semester Hours
Course Level CPS - Undergraduate Semester
Description Covers design topics relative to the creation, modification, analysis, and optimization of engineering components and assemblies with extensive use of selected computer-aided design software (CAD). Concentrates on the use of contemporary parametric and/or explicit CAD modeling, management of associative relationships between geometries, and digital prototyping. Studies the role of CAD in product development and product life-cycle management. Involves extensive hands-on practice using commands and featured capabilities of the selected CAD software and completion of individual or team design projects. Projects focus primarily on mechanical systems design. Emphasizes accurate dimensioning, symbol interpretation, and accurate tolerancing of digital designs. Also includes introductory topics of graphical analysis of mechanical stress of elements and assemblies.
