Outcomes and Objectives
- Apply knowledge and skills from previous technical classes to provide solutions to complex mechanical designs.
- Participate in the design process to organize, communicate, and draw sets of working drawings as an individual or as a member of a design team.
- Demonstrate the design process of identify the problem, propose concepts & ideas, develop solutions, and prepare working drawings based on the design process.
- Demonstrate work on a variety of projects such as plant layout, piping, machine design, welding fabrication and fixtures.
- Present professional quality mechanical designs.
- Draw professional level drawings using current catalog components, current drafting standards, and current graphic techniques.
- Demonstrate knowledge and skills previously acquired in technical classes.
- Demonstrate skills in layout, dimensioning, tolerancing, multi-view & auxiliary projections, sectioning, and other related techniques.
