ETD

ETD 1320C   INTRODUCTION TO CAD

credits: 3  
The student will learn to use the major features of AutoCAD to make graphic displays including basic geometric figures, orthographic views of three-dimensional objects and pictorial drawings of three-dimensional objects. The major topics include the AutoCAD drawing, utility, file handling, text, editing, dimensioning and plotting features. 77 contact hours.

ETD 1340C   AUTOCAD II

credits: 3  
Prerequisite: ETD 1320C or equivalent. This course is a continuation of Introduction to CAD. The student will learn the advanced topics in AutoCAD using intermediate techniques of AutoCAD software to develop three dimensional drawings, construction drawings and architectural drawings. The major topics include plotting by various methods, use of the rotation option to draw auxiliary views, extended work with hatching, extended work with blocks and wblocks, dimensioning, use of attributes, library files, polylines, solids, system variables, and customizing AutoCAD. 77 contact hours.

ETD 1350C   AUTOCAD III 3-D MODELING

credits: 3  
Prerequisite: ETD 1320C or permission of the program director. AutoCAD III is a continuation of the Introduction to CAD, and AutoCAD II. This course covers the construction, viewing, and plotting of three-dimensional drawings of objects, including construction and architectural drawings. The major topics involve the construction of three-dimensional drawings by the use of various AutoCAD three-dimensional drawing facilities including (1) prismatic-object construction, (2) preconfigured primitive objects, (3) three-dimensional coordinates, and (4) three-dimensional surface entities. 77 contact hours.

ETD 1390C   INTRODUCTION TO ARCHITECTURAL REVIT

credits: 3  
Prerequisite: ETD 1320C or permission of program director. This is an introduction course using Revit architectural software to produce three dimensional (3-D) designs and details of buildings. Topics consist of the techniques and methods to create architectural buildings to include: site plans, floor plans, roof design, 3-D photo-realistic rendering, and creating two dimensional (2-D) architectural drawings from the construction’s documents set of structural drawings. 77 contact hours.

ETD 2364C   INTRODUCTION TO SOLIDWORKS

credits: 3  
This course is an introduction to the new designing techniques and capabilities of solid modeling using the SolidWorks software. Topics include the integration of advance parametric solid modeling drawing tools into SolidWorks. 77 contact hours.

ETD 2368C   ADVANCED SOLIDWORKS

credits: 3  
Prerequisite: ETD 2364C or permission of instructor. This course presents the advanced use of new designing techniques and capabilities of solid modeling using the SolidWorks software, including the integration of the advanced parametric modeling and drawing tools for SolidWorks. The course topics to be covered include advanced 3D sketching, advanced work planes, advanced assembly construction, bottom up and top down, part configuration, SolidWorks Tool Box applications, concept of mold design, and creation of sheet metal parts and assemblies. 77 contact hours.

ETD 2369C   SOLIDWORKS ADVANCED APPLICATIONS

credits: 3  
Prerequisite: ETD 2364C or permission of program director.

ETD 2371C   RAPID PROTOTYPING, MODEL DESIGN AND FABRICATION

credits: 3  
Prerequisite: ETD 2364C, ETD 1350C, or permission of the program administrator. Rapid model making and prototype design is a valued part of many industries, including transportation, architecture, product, packaging, media, and entertainment. The growth of rapid prototyping technology has opened up new areas of development in design representation, such as simulation analysis and various rapid prototyping processes. This course will develop elements of creative thinking and problem solving used in the design process, including the techniques and methods used to construct prototypes and models. In the project aspect of this course, the students select a field of specialization to explore methods and materials in a number of options in industrial environment with the use of computer simulation, modeling, and rapid prototyping. 77 contact hours.

ETD 2382C   SOLIDWORKS SIMULATION DESIGN ANALYSIS

credits: 3  

Prerequisites: ETD 2364C or permission from the program administrator. This course will use the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) theory topics to cover static component forces and resultant force analysis of basic shapes using SolidWorks simulation design analysis. The major topics will address model definition, model shape and setup, analysis type based on environmental conditions, analysis assumptions and limitations, convergence techniques that will lead to a more exact solution to the analysis, interpreting the results correctly, and using these results to optimize the baseline design based on design requirements. 77 contact hours.

ETD 2392C   ADVANCED ARCHITECTURAL REVIT

credits: 3  
Prerequisite: ETD 1390C or permission of the program administrator. This is an advanced course of Autodesk Revit to create, design and produce construction and schematic drawings of mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems of a building project. Topics include the techniques used to create architectural building drawings to include an overview of the Building Information Modeling (BIM) process, including the design integration of the various building disciplines: architectural, interior design, structural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP). 77 contact hours.
