EGR-103 - Computer Applications in Engineering

3 credits

An introductory course in engineering that utilizes various computer applications to assist in the analysis and communication of the design of an engineering assembly. One third of the course will be devoted to Computer Aided Drafting. Three-dimensional wireframe and solid models will be created. Orthographic projections, auxiliary views, isometric views, dimensioning, and assembly drawings will be discussed. The second third of the course will introduce the spreadsheet as an engineering problem solving tool that facilitates complex calculations, rapid graphical analysis, and numerical modeling. The remaining third of the course will be used to introduce design criteria for assembly, and oral and written presentations. The oral presentation will be facilitated using Power Point software.
