Applies intermediate to advanced AutoCAD functions and shortcuts, expanding knowledge from Technical Drafting / CAD. Explores the 3D modeling functions in AutoCAD. Applies these skills to create auxiliary views, section views and complex assemblies. The learner will create a variety of working drawings using the mechanical drawing skills obtained in the prerequisite courses and the AutoCAD software to increase skills and efficiency.
Introduces the learner to basic SolidWorks commands to produce 3-dimentsional parts, assemblies and engineering drawings. The learner will master beginner level commands and have a thorough understanding of the basic operation of the software.
Develop a thorough understanding of the statics and mechanics principles that are of paramount importance for learners in the engineering and technical programs. Mechanics is the branch of physical science that deals with state of rest or motion under the action of forces. Mechanics is the foundation for most engineering sciences and an indispensable prerequisite to most engineering or technical courses. In this course, you will develop a thorough understanding of the statics and mechanics principles that are of paramount importance for students in the engineering and technical programs. You will then apply these mechanics principles in various assignments and projects.
Examines manufacturing processes, raw materials and their properties before and after processing. The learner will take an in-depth look at the various materials and processes considered "hot-working" manufacturing processes - primarily casting, forging, stamping, powder metal and welding.
