Introduction to Engineering Design is an introductory course which develops student problem solving skills with emphasis placed on the development of three-dimensional solid models. Students will work from sketching simple geometric shapes to applying a solid modeling computer software package. They will learn a problem solving design process and how it is used in industry to manufacture a product. The Computer Aided Design System (CAD) will also be used to analyze and evaluate the product design. The techniques learned, and equipment used, is state of the art and are currently being used by engineers throughout the United States. Only those schools having a signed agreement with the national Project Lead the Way organization can use this course title.
Students will use a design development process. Students will create models of product solutions using a 3-D solid modeling computer software such as inventor and auto CAD
