CAD 228 - Practicum In CAD Technology


Course Description: This capstone course will simulate an industrial design environment where CAD drafters and designers work on team projects, communicate verbally and in writing with peers, superiors, and clients or vendors and develop and practice collaborative and intra/interpersonal skills. Included is a comprehensive project in which the students interact with the CAD faculty instructors in the process of developing various segments of the project in which students develop complete sets of working drawings and assemblies to industrial dimensioning and fabrication standards, and document and prepare materials for presentations to colleagues, and superiors. The students will use the knowledge acquired in solid modeling and engineering graphics courses, they also will be responsible for developing working prototypes of their projects. 2 hours lecture/4 hours lab
Prerequisite(s): Completion CAD 225 and CAD 227
Note(s): N/A

Course Student Learning Outcomes:
  • Design a set of 3D solid / surface models of an E / M design, mechanical design or architectural design as their final project.         
  • Use the finished design to create 3D presentations using slides, scripts, animation and / or rendered outputs.
  • Combine engineering changes to solid models and revise and record the changes on the detail drawings.
  • Create unified and coherent short papers that include writing for analysis, description, explanation and evaluation of specified workplace issues / situations.
