AUTOCAD CIVIL 3D

Prerequisite: A working knowledge of AutoCAD

AutoCAD Civil 3D is used for civil engineering design, analysis, surveying, and mapping. Learn the user interface—analyze surfaces; work with alignments, profiles, assemblies, cross-sections and more. Knowledge of Civil 3D is a resume booster and increases your appeal to prospective employers. Designed for engineering students seeking internship opportunities (especially seniors), industry professionals who need to update their knowledge but cannot take time away from work, or anyone else that may be looking to learn or to just “brush up” their skillset. Course topics and duration may be modified based upon the knowledge and background of the course participants. CAD 112

SOLIDWORKS SOLID MODELING CAD

SolidWorks is a widely used computer-aided design and engineering (CAD/CAE) package. Solid modeling topics include: sketching, basic 3D functions (extrude, revolve, etc.), advanced 3D functions (sweep, loft, etc.), assembly creation and an introduction to finite element analysis (FEA). Translate 3D solid models into 2D technical data packages for manufacturing. Learn fundamental and advanced functions in SolidWorks necessary for any designer, drafter, or engineer.

Each topic will have an associated exercise for a hands-on understanding of the material, and each exercise will build upon previous exercises. At the end of the course, students will have a physical data package (models and drawings) that will show proficiency with the software. This data package may also be used for job interviews as evidence of proficiency. CAD 113

INVENTOR – SOLID MODELING CAD

Inventor is intended for the prospective designer, inventor, prototyper, draftsperson, test fixture designer, advanced manufacturing technician, operator or engineer.  This ten-hour course on harnesses the power of Inventor software tool to realize the 3D and 2D modeling of physical components as well as to introduce Inventor’s capabilities in assisting in the design and analysis of assemblies.

According to Autodesk, ‘With Inventor software, engineers can integrate 2D AutoCAD drawings and 3D data into a single digital model, creating a virtual representation of the final product that enables them to validate the form, fit, and function of the product before it is ever built.’

Each topic will have an associated exercise for a hands-on understanding of the material, and each exercise will build upon previous exercises. At the end of the course, students will have a physical data package (models and drawings) that will show proficiency with the software. This data package may also be used for job interviews as evidence of proficiency.  CAD 114
