Engineering Design (EDSGN)

EDSGN 110 Spatial Analysis in Engineering Design (2) Spatial analysis techniques using advanced computer-aided drafting and design systems, with an emphasis on engineering concepts, analysis and design.

ESDSGN 110 Spatial Analysis in Engineering Design (2)

EDSGN 110 is a continuation of EDSGN 100, moving toward an introduction to computer-aided engineering. Emphasis is on the design of mechanical systems using two-dimensional (2D) drawings and three-dimensional (3D) solid modeling techniques commonly used in the mechanical design and structural systems.
This course covers spatial relationships using the advanced functionality of computer-aided drafting and design systems. Students will be able to: (1) create and interpret advanced 2D engineering models and drawings; (2) create and manipulate 3D solid models; and (3) use these techniques in practical engineering design problems.
Students will become proficient in the use of computers for the simulation of mechanical systems, design documentation, network storage and retrieval, and presentation technologies. The student will create and interpret advanced 2D engineering drawings which may include auxiliary views and working drawings. Using the engineering design process and solid modeling software, the student will create and manipulate 3D solid models and assemblies to aid in the design and documentation of simple mechanical systems.
