EGR 150 - Engineering Design I with Graphics
Engineers must be able to communicate their design ideas to others. Thus, this first course in Engineering Design focuses on the improvement of communication skills. These include written, oral presentation, sketching, and computer application skills. Since our world is three-dimensional, some effort is made to improve the spatial visualization ability of students. In addition, the principles of orthographic projection are learned and applied in drawing by hand and in modeling using the computer. Students work in teams on projects with the goal of recognizing and developing behaviors associated with consensus decision-making and cooperative teamwork. The steps of the engineering design process are learned.
1 Class Hour, 3 Lab Hours
Learning Outcomes of the Course:
Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
1. Use a word processing program to create a lab report, technical report, English assignment, or other written document. The finished piece should be visually appealing and show that the student has made use of the many capabilities offered by the program.
2. Read and send email messages that may contain attached files.
3. Use a spreadsheet program and other computational and/or simulation tools (including Excel and MatLab) to list and process data, including graphical representation of the data and regression analysis.
4. Use presentation graphics tools to create a presentation suitable for a large group.
5. Sketch a reasonably accurate isometric view of a three-dimensional object.
6. Create an accurate set of orthographic projection images of a three-dimensional object.
7. Describe the steps of the engineering design process.
8. Recognize and demonstrate various behaviors that contribute to cooperation and consensus building within a team.
9. Effectively participate as a member of a task team.
10. Objectively evaluate the performance of him/herself as well as other team members in group projects.
11. Sketch a design tree of how a solid model of a three-dimensional object will created in a CAP program.
12. Use a parametric CAD program to:
a. Create a solid model of a three-dimensional object.
b. Edit and make changes to an extisting solid model.
c. Produce dimensioned orthographic views from the solid model.
d. Connect several solid models together to form an exploded assembly drawing.
