Computer Solid Modeling and Virtual Simulation

MET 2020 3 Semester Hours
Course Level CPS - Undergraduate Semester
Description Offers students an opportunity to use computer-aided design tools to perfect, optimize, and simulate functioning of digital engineering designs. Concentrates on 3D solid modeling, structural and thermal graphical analysis, and virtual simulation of digital elements and assemblies. Applies featured capabilities of selected modern CAD software to a host of different mechanical engineering applications, and investigates optimization of designs through virtual experimentation and testing of design parameters including durability, cost, static and dynamic response, assembly motion, and graphical analysis of mechanical stresses. Requires completion and presentation of advanced and comprehensive individual or team-based CAD projects.   


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