Computer Aided Design (Apprenticeship)


This module provides students with a broad introduction into 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and modelling with a focus on manufacturing specific applications. Students will learn how to use industry-leading CAD software programs to model engineering components and assemblies, and then communicate through industry-standard engineering manufacturing drawings

Learning Outcomes

  1. Apply engineering graphics standards.

  2. Read and interpret 2D and 3D drawings, and communicate through drawing documents.

  3. Produce and explain orthographic and multiview 2D drawings from 3D solid model

  4. Create 3D solid models and part assemblies using the relevant procedure.

  5. Use standards parts libraries for the selection of appropriate standard components in the design / assembly process.
