IMPORTANT NOTE: As of 11/1/2012 this description has been revised... All new submissions must match the new descriptor after this point. All courses currently approved remain approved and will be fully reviewed against this new description in Spring 2014. By this time, courses should be updated to match this description via curriculum processes.
Engineering Design Graphics/CAD (3-4 semester credit hours, 4-6 contact hours) – This course is an introduction to engineering design and graphics, including design problems, sketching, dimensioning, tolerancing, multi-view orthographic representations, auxiliary views, section views, and working drawings. Students are required to use CAD in this course. Sketching and CAD techniques should be integrated in this course to achieve the following outcomes:
· Analyze the engineering function of existing products
· Apply design principles and rationale in a realistic and original design project.
· Work in a team to generate, analyze, evaluate and select among engineering design solutions to meet specified requirements
o Create functional description of the design intent
o Develop design objectives
o Build functional physical model and test it
o Communicate the results of the design process, including working drawings, verbal, and written presentations.
· Demonstrate proficiency in freehand sketching to communicate design ideas
o Convert between pictorial and multiviews.
· Demonstrate spatial visualization and reasoning skills by using 3D parametric solid modeling analysis
· Interpret and create working drawings:
o Convert between pictorial views and multiview drawings.
o Create appropriate section views from given multiview drawings
o Create a properly dimensioned and toleranced multiview drawings using engineering standards
o Create appropriate auxiliary views from given multiview drawings
o Create complete working drawings with detailed part drawings and assembly drawings
