Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Computer Aided Design (CAD) encompasses a variety of computer tools which enable engineers to design, simulate and model an engineered product. In addition, quite often the person that designs an object is not the same with the one that builds/manufactures it. Therefore, CAD drawings are the tool of communication between the designer and the manufacturer/builder. This subject develops understanding and problem-solving skills necessary to interpret and use CAD tools.
