Legacy Code 301290

Coordinator Mauricio Novoa Opens in new window

Description Students will design manufacture ready product samples through the use of computer graphics including three-dimensional (3D) surfacing and solids modelling methods used by professionals engaged in engineering and industrial design practice. Students will produce two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) documentation, which can be widely applied to facilitate the understanding and production of parts and assemblies.
