GENENG 2030 Engineering Modeling and Design 3 Credits

An introduction to design tools and practices associated with the design and development of engineering systems. Students will gain experience with solid modeling tools, including part modeling, assembly modeling and the reading and creation of layout drawings. The project portion of the course will focus on "reverse engineering". Reverse engineering will be used to examine the design of existing systems (objects such as: a fishing reel, a small refrigerator, a hair dryer, and similar), their assembly, and the engineering principles that form the foundation for the product. Students will model these systems and suggest possible design changes that might lead to improvements in form, function, and/or assembly.
