Course Number & Name: ENR 205 Advanced Computer-Aided Design
Credit Hours: 3.0 Contact Hours: 3.0 Lecture: 2.0 Lab: 1.0 Other: N/A
Course Description: This third course in Computer Aided Design (CAD) uses the latest release of AutoDesk software products in mechanical, architectural and civil engineering design. Students perform a number of hands-on projects using Inventor (parametric 3D-solid modeling), AutoCAD Architect (3D architectural design), and Civil 3D software. These projects cover general 3D design and detailing problems related to the above-mentioned disciplines.
<!–Course Goals: Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to do the following:
- proficiently use AutoCAD, a general-purpose CAD system;
- utilize Inventor, a parametric 3D-solid modeling package, to design and detail mechanical parts and assembly;
- complete architectural design projects, including floor plans, profiles, sections, and detailing, using AutoCAD Architect; and
- proficiently use Civil 3D software, a highly-specialized software for civil engineers and surveyors.
