This curriculum prepares graduates for mechanical and engineering design positions in manufacturing- and engineering-based industries using advanced 2D and 3D CAD applications. Graduates will work with engineers and technicians to solve technical design problems in the development and manufacturing of products. 

About

The curriculum will prepare the designer to balance function, aesthetics, legal issues, ethical issues, manufacturing parameters, market forces, cultural variables and engineering economics to develop marketable products and systems. Specialized topics in dynamic simulation and finite element analysis provide further opportunity for the graduate. Product design and manufacturing processes are emphasized and problem solving and analytical skills are enhanced through projects, often involving team collaboration. Cutting-edge CAD instruction within state-of-the-art computer and 3D printing labs prepares the graduate for today's work environment with a focus on parametric CAD and digital prototyping applications. AutoCAD®, Autodesk Inventor®, SolidWorks®, and Creo Parametric (formerly Pro/E) ® are used extensively in the program. In addition to course work specific to the major, mathematics, science, metallurgy, manufacturing materials, communications, and computer applications prepare the graduate for the drafting and design field.
