Subject outline

Advanced CAD (in this offering CATIA) is used as a design tool to build parts and assemblies aiding in complex design. Students will learn how to create parts and assemblies, drawings of those parts and assemblies, and basic FEA (Finite Element Analysis) for structural analysis. Apart of the simulation process students will learn how to generate meshes, apply boundary conditions, loads, and material properties to their design and generate an FEA report. Students will build a design portfolio containing rapid prototyping models whilst completing various exercises and design projects. Students will obtain a solid foundation in the use of CATIA for their future designs and engineering analyses.
