Course Description

This course is designed for freshmen engineering and science students to provide them a basic introduction of various stages involved in an engineering product design. It will help students to interpret and create computer aided mechanical parts and assembly drawings, interpret and create schematic and layout drawings for electronic circuits, Identify materials and select manufacturing processes for engineering products. Students will also be given an opportunity to get hands on experience on conventional and non-conventional machines such as CNC and 3D printers for rapid prototyping. The course is divided into four modules each of which contains lab tasks for practice and module project to test the concepts learned. The final module is a course project in which students shall use all the concepts learned in this course in order to consolidate their learning and to give them an opportunity to work with in larger team.

Learning Outcomes

The students should be able to:

  • Identify electrical/electronic devices and usage of electrical/mechanical measurement tools
  • Identify manufacturing process and materials in an engineering product design.
  • Create and interpret mechanical drawings
  • Create and interpret electronic schematics and layout drawings.
  • Use modern CAD/CAM and other rapid prototyping tools.
  • Recall and demonstrate workshop/industrial safety practices.
  • Work within a team toward finding solutions for engineering problems.
