An introductory course to explore engineering and technical design solutions using critical thinking in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Learning modules include; The Engineering Design Process & Professions, Sketching & Documentation, Design Measuring, CAD & Geometric Constraints, Design Visualization, Orthographic Projection & Multi-View Drawings, Fasteners, Assembly Drawings, Dimensioning, Tolerancing and Final Team Design Projects.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion students will be able to:

  1. Understand the role of design in society, related professions and the engineering design process
  2. Document the design process using the engineering notebook to solve technological problems
  3. Understand and apply mathematics, measuring conventions and scales using scale factors
  4. Create a 3D model from a 2D sketch
  5. Develop the ability to visualize and manipulate a design solution in 2D & 3D
  6. Create orthographic projections of given objects and develop multi-view drawings that include all necessary views
  7. Define and identify threaded fasteners
  8. Document an assembly of multiple parts
  9. Fully describe the size, shape, location and manufacturing required to produce a part
  10. Fully define the allowable variation of geometric size, shape, location and manufacturing required to produce a part
  11. Follow the engineering design process in a team environment to document a design solution
