This class introduces the student to the field of Computer Assisted Design and Drafting. This class provides the student with an overview of how CAD is used in a variety of disciplines and its roll in engineering disciplines and product production. Uses AutoCAD (3 units)

CAD 222: CAD Mechanical Design I (3-Dimensional Solid Modeling)
This class is designed as a continuation of CAD 220. Emphasis is on more advanced CAD functions with an emphasis on 3-dimensional modeling using Autodesk Inventor and SolidWorks software. (3 units)

CAD 223: CAD Detailing and Dimensioning
This class focuses on advanced dimensioning application, tolerancing and view development for mechanical parts and assemblies. Class content: View development, mechanical dimensioning styles, hole and thread recognition and callout and ANSI Y14.5 standard. (3 units)

CAD 224: CAD Mechanical Design II
This class provides the student an opportunity to apply skills developed in previous CAD courses. Focus will be on development of mechanical parts and assemblies in preparation for integration with Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) (2.5 units)

CAD 230: Introduction to SolidWorks
Introduces students to solid modeling using SolidWorks software. Provides strategies in the construction and analysis of solid parts and related drawings and assemblies. (2.5 units)
