 Course Goals   

This course covers the theory and practice of Computer-Aided Design (CAD), Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM), and Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE). To increase productivity, traditional drawing-and-calculator-based methods are being replaced by computational engineering tools including drawing software, solid modelers, finite element analysis software, mathematical packages, kinematics simulators, dynamic simulators, etc. The students will learn how information technologies are rapidly changing the way engineering design, analysis and manufacturing are practiced in industry.
