Curriculum ENT.CAD.CERT (C548E)

The Engineering Technology/CAD (Computer-Aided Design) Advanced Certificate curriculum provides the student with the coursework needed to be in an entry-level position where skills and knowledge of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software is required.

Contains coursework within the Engineering Technology AAS degree; a degree that gives graduates the education needed to fill technical positions in product design and development and transfers to four-year technology-related programs, including (but not limited to) the Illinois Institute of Technology, Illinois State University, Northern Illinois University and Purdue University/Calumet. These four-year programs further prepare the graduates to move into leadership roles, such as industrial supervision, machine and tool designer, technical buyers, production expediters and cost estimators.

PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES:

At the successful completion of the Engineering Technology/CAD Advanced Certificate, the graduate will be able to:

  • measure in inches and metric system;
  • analyze a piece-part drawing to produce 2D/3D models;
  • generate 3D CAD models from isometric drawings of models;
  • produce detail drawings using AutoCAD, Inventor and Solidworks in 1st and 3rd Angle Projection; and
  • generate assembly with bill of material drawings of model assemblies in Inventor and Solidworks.
