CAD1050................4 credits
    Geometric, Dimensioning & Tolerance (GD&T)

The student will learn the principles of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerance (GD&T) as applied to engineering design, manufacturing and quality control. The course includes geometric concepts and standards used to communicate engineering design intent and to provide a basis for design and productions. The course also includes national and international geometric standards of symbols and terms, datum feature modifiers, types of tolerances, datum reference frames, material boundary modifiers and other related topics. Also included are concepts of basic part print reading as it relates to GD&T. Course/lab fees.

      Revit Advanced Architectural Applications
      Prerequisite CAD1151 or consent of instructor

This course expands on the use of CAD software for the application of building information modeling (BIM) for architecture.  Students will learn CAD techniques of advanced wall creation and manipulation, creation of details, wall sections, multiple floor systems and stair development.  the course also covers walk through techniques and the management of design revisions within CAD database.  In addition to classroom lecture an demonstrations, students will utilize CAD equipment in an interactive lecture environment.  Refer to current Schedule of Classes for Software version(s) Course/lab fees.

CAD2340....................4 credits
     Tool & Die Design
     Prerequisite: CAD2110 or consent of instructor
     Pre or Co requisite: CAD2190 or consent of instructor

This course is designed to acquaint the student with the procedures involved in developing Tool and Die designs.  The course covers jigs, fixtures, other tooling devices and includes the preparation of all necessary drawings and supporting documents.   Student will study the various types of dies and standard die components and will learn basic techniques to design blanking, piercing, compound blanking, piercing dies and progressive.  Design considerations of parts to be stamped and reactions of stock material will be studied along with strip layout, shearing action and stripper construction.  Refer to current Schedule of Classes for software version(s).   Course/lab fees. 


Classes that will be offered in the future......

CAD2000..................3 credits
      Animation Design II
      Prerequisite: CAD1105 or consent of instructor

This course is designed to build upon the foundation skills learned in Animation Design.  Students will develop additional skills to create computer animations and models.  Emphasis will be on character modeling, rigging and animation.  Students will create animations for various applications for architectural, engineering, gaming, scientific and legal industries; crime scene reconstruction; and machine simulation.  Refer to current Schedule of Classes for software version(s).  Course/lab fees.

CAD2105.....................3 credits
      Simulation for Design and Manufacturing
      Prerequisite: CAD2102

This course provides the foundation to digitally define and simulate manufacturing processes using DELMIA (Digital Enterprise Leans Manufacturing Interactive Applications), DPM (Digital Process Manufacturing) and 3D data from CATIA V5 or any major CAD system.  Heavy emphasis on building assembly simulation, conceptual process plans and process verification within the new CATIA/DELMIA V5 paradigm is a common thread throughout the course.  This course will present how to use the DPM Assembly Process Simulation tools to create assembly build sequences, simulations, and conceptual process plans for visualization, validation and verification of manufacturing processes.  Refer to current Schedule of classes for software version(s).  Course/Lab fees.

CAD2251.....................3 credits
      Autodesk Inventor
      Prerequisite: CAD1200

CAD2252.....................3 credits
     AutoCAD Advanced Architectural Desktop using combination
     of Architecture 2014 and Photoshop     
     Prerequisite: CAD 1101 & CAD1151

Introduction to Image Editing Software and how it is applied to develop comprehensive Architecture presentations from technical AutoCAD drawings.  Students will learn to use image editing techniques and principles to create color presentation materials, which includes Architectural Site Plans, Floor Plans, Elevations and Building sections.  Students will also be introduced to Photo-Realistic techniques which can be applied to 2d rendered exterior building elevations.  In addition to formal classroom lecture and demonstrations, students will use equipment such as Photoshop software and other hardware to complete a series of assignments.

CAD2257...................4 credits
      Introduction to CATIA V6 - CATIA  V6 PLM Engineering Design Software

This course is an introduction to Computer-Aided Three-Dimensioal=Interactive-Application (CATIA V6) this coures is designed for a new user of CATIA V6.  This software is designed to optimize all stages of the Production Life - Cycle (PLM).  Projects stress teamwork, the design process, and creativity and analytical thinking. Most lecture time is dedicated to introducing students to the vocabulary, theory, and practice of engineering/manufacturing as well as the operations in the specific software.  Students will create solid foundation for their design and analysis, through various exercises.  Refer to current Schedule of Classes course/lab fees.
