CADD-204 CADD Product Design Applications

Credits 4 / 6 Contact Hours
Pre-requisite: Placement into ACRD 080 ; Minimum 2.0 in CADD 160   Pre- or Co-requisite: CADD 203 
A lecture/laboratory course which explores design concepts associated with the development of production parts. Concepts relating to design material selection manufacturing processes and cost will be emphasized. The course will address practical job-related situations using methods currently in use by industry in the development of new products. Assignments will include design analysis design reviews and practical application problems completed in a CADD environment. The course will build on those topics addressed in CADD-160  and is project based.
