Upon completion of this course, the student will:

  1. Describe and apply the adaptive assembly approach.
    1. Update an entire system after changing one parameter.
    2. Explore and evaluate different design variations and alternatives to determine the best design.
  2. Interpret and apply the basic parametric modeling process.
    1. Explain and apply constructive solid geometry concepts.
    2. Explain and apply Boolean operations.
    3. Create placed features.
    4. Use the different extrusion options.
  3. Produce a simple parametric model.
    1. Create parametric relations.
    2. Use dimensional variables.
    3. Display, add, and delete geometric constraints.
    4. Display and modify parametric relations.
    5. Create constrained sketches.
  4. Create drawing layouts from a parametric model.
    1. Add borders and title block.
    2. Arrange and manage 2D views.
    3. Create sectioned orthogonal views.
    4. Create reference dimensions.
Evaluation Criteria/Policies:

Students must demonstrate proficiency on all CCPOs at a minimal 75 percent level to successfully complete the course. The grade will be determined using the Delaware Tech grading system:

92 100 = A
83 91 = B
75 82 = C
0 74 = F

Students should refer to the Student Handbook for information on the Academic Standing Policy, the Academic Integrity Policy, Student Rights and Responsibilities, and other policies relevant to their academic progress.

Core Curriculum Competencies (CCCs are the competencies every graduate will develop):
  1. Apply clear and effective communication skills.
  2. Use critical thinking to solve problems.
  3. Collaborate to achieve a common goal.
  4. Demonstrate professional and ethical conduct.
  5. Use information literacy for effective vocational and/or academic research.
  6. Apply quantitative reasoning and/or scientific inquiry to solve practical problems.
Program Graduate Competencies (PGCs are the competencies every graduate will develop specific to his or her major):
  1. Prepare detailed mechanical, machine, architectural, structural, HVAC, industrial piping, and electrical/electronics drawings for light commercial, manufacturing, and industrial companies.
  2. Perform routine structural design calculations required to size steel beams, columns, and decking materials in accordance to AISC standards and reinforced concrete slabs and foundation footings in accordance to ACI standards.
  3. Support manufacturing office administration activities with the ability to read and interpret drawings and specifications, prepare technically accurate drawings using both manual and CAD techniques, perform quantity surveys and organize cost data for cost estimating functions, prepare or check shop drawings, assist in the planning or coordinating of manufacturing activities, assist designers, and coordinate the preparation and review of bid packages.
  4. Provide meaningful and innovative assistance to supervising engineers or designers by developing layout design solutions to manufacturing problems, recommending alternate material substitutions or methods of production, and applying reference resources to collect, organize, and analyze required research data.
  5. Collect, organize, and analyze data for manufacturing machine parts, and prepare plans for department and/or client approval.
