ENGR& 114 Engineering Graphics (5 credits)

Distribution Area Fulfilled General Transfer Elective
Formerly ENGR 110 - CCN

Prerequisite Completion of Math Guided Self-Placement (GSP)

Course Description
An introduction to Computer Aided Design (CAD) using software based on parametric solid modeling. Students will use the software to create virtual models, show the models in various projections and views, manage the associated computer files, and produce engineering drawings. The course includes the engineering graphics topics of three-dimensional visualization, sketching, displaying solid objects in two-dimensional views, dimensioning, and reading engineering drawings.

Course Content
A. Fundamentals of CAD part modeling; conventions and techniques.
B. Creation of engineering drawings from CAD models.
C. Techniques for creating assembly models from parts models in CAD.
D. Creating exploded and assembly drawings from assembly models in CAD.
E. Projections – creation of orthographic, isometric, and oblique projection drawings from part and assembly models using solid modeling CAD systems.
F. Fundamental surface modeling techniques.
G. Application of dimensioning tolerancing techniques and to CAD models, drawings and assemblies.
H. Fundamentals of engineering design and its expression as a design in CAD.
I. Read and interpret engineering drawings.

Student Outcomes
1. Describe and construct three-dimensional parts and assemblies using CAD software.

2. Read and produce detailed parts and assembly drawings in CAD using accepted visual, dimensioning and tolerance techniques.

3. Produce original three-dimensional computer models of components and their assemblies.

4. Demonstrate the application of CAD drawing and visualization to engineering design.

5. Demonstrate surface modeling in CAD.

6. Use a combination of parametric, surface and solid modeling to create CAD models.

7. Visualize and sketch three-dimensional objects in two dimensions using various projections and views.

Degree Outcomes
Critical, Creative, and Reflective Thinking: Graduates will evaluate, analyze, synthesize, and generate ideas; construct informed, meaningful, and justifiable conclusions; and process feelings, beliefs, biases, strengths, and weaknesses as they relate to their thinking, decisions, and creations.
