Course Number & Name: ENR 250 Computer-Aided Design Project
Credit Hours: 2.0 Contact Hours: 2.0 Lecture: 1.0 Lab: 1.0 Other: N/A
Course Description: In this course, students apply the skills they learned from previous CAD courses to individually design a comprehensive project in their fields using specialized CAD software commonly used in workplaces. For example, manufacturing and mechanical students design parts using a parametric solid modeling package; architectural students make architectural designs using an animation and rendering package; and civil construction/surveying students complete projects in construction, road design, and surveying using civil and mapping packages. Students are provided internship opportunities with industry.
<!–Course Goals: Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to do the following:
- design, propose, and plan the execution of a comprehensive computer-aided design (CAD) project;
- utilize one or more of the specialty CAD systems (AutoCAD, Inventor, AutoCAD Architect, and/or Civil 3D) to complete the project;
- employ standards consistent with industry standards to present the results; and
- prepare a written report and make an oral presentation of the project.
