Students will develop skills in advanced CAD and engineering graphic communications. Advanced principles of drawing and engineering (including tolerances, threads and fasteners, complete working/assembly drawings, advanced dimensioning and sectioning) will be explored. Students will utilize 3D parametric modeling CAD software to create, manipulate and plot drawings. This course includes several individual and small group projects that allow students to apply skills and theories experienced in class. Advanced manufacturing concepts (CNC, 3D printing) will be explored. Students will participate in local and state competitions, such as MITES. This class is recommended for those students interested in Engineering and Design careers.
