Introduction to CAD for Electrical and Computer Engineering (2) Introduction to computer-aided drafting (CAD) for Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology students with a focus on three dimensional assemblies.
EG T 119 Introduction to CAD for Electrical and Computer Engineering (2)
This course is intended to teach Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology students to use a 3-D CAD software package to communicate their ideas so that they may transfer their ideas to others including engineers, designers, and lay people.
Students will successfully create 3-D objects such as rectangular solids, spheres, and cylinders. Those 3-D objects will then be employed to create actual samplings of electrical and electronic components (such as resistors, capacitors, transformers, etc), as well as electro-mechanical components (such as relays, motors, solenoids, etc), enclosures (chassis), and operator interfaces (knobs, buttons, displays, etc) and similar items. Students will successfully create 3-D assemblies. Students will successfully create working drawings of components and assemblies.
The designated course outcomes are as follows: visualize mechanical part(s) 2-D to 3-D and vice versa; incorporate design intent into solid models using extrusions, revolves, shells, ribs, chamfers and rounds; construct datum references (e.g. planes and axes) to facilitate solid modeling; properly execute duplicating operations to create circular and linear patterns of features and mirrored features; use mathematical relations to drive solid models; create a detail drawing of a mechanical part; create 3-D assemblies.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
