GET 1150 3 Semester Hours
Course Level CPS - Undergraduate Semester
Description Offers students an opportunity to obtain basic engineering drafting and introductory design skills needed to function in a computer-aided drafting (CAD) environment. Covers the history of engineering hand drafting and the differences/similarities with respect to CAD tools used today. Discusses the basic steps of the engineering design process and how to apply these steps in small design projects where pictorial sketching and descriptive geometry (isometric and oblique drawings and projections) are used to communicate graphical solutions to proposed problems. Covers basic understanding of mechanical, electrical, and architectural layouts, and introduces basic dimensioning and tolerancing terms. Introduces the general features, capabilities, similarities, and differences among common engineering CAD software—such as SolidWorks, Autodesk AutoCAD, and PTC Creo—through introductory lab sessions.


Students should refer to the CPS Prerequisite Table for course prerequisite and corequisite information.
