This is an introductory course in engineering graphics and design focusing on geometric modeling (BIM). The main objectives of the course are:

  • To develop spatial visualization and reasoning skills.
  • To gain familiarity with the standards and conventions of engineering design graphics.
  • To use geometric modeling software (e.g., parametric) as a design and visualization tool. Emphasis placed upon learning general modeling concepts and techniques.
  • To gain exposure to digital simulation and prototyping tools commonly used in product design.
  • To develop sketching skills using pencil and paper, and digital tablets.
  • To introduce engineering design methodology, and to demonstrate the role of graphics in the engineering design process.
  • To provide insight into the product design process, in particular as it relates to the architecture and functionality of the product.

An essential part of the course is a design project which students complete in group of 3-5 students. The project is worth 20% of the final grade.
