SOLIDWORKS I

Course Code: CECD 459
If you're interested in 3D and computer-aided design, you obviously have great spatial awareness and a keen desire to get down to work. This course is a great place to start. You'll familiarize yourself with the parametric design philosophy (don't worry, it's cooler than it sounds) of SolidWorks, including sketching, part modeling, assembly and detailing, as well as geometric and dimensional constraints. You'll work hands-on with the latest equipment to develop professional skills and techniques using SolidWorks features and concepts. At the end of the course, you'll be ready to tackle new design challenges, like gaining proficiency in SolidWorks Level II, one of the world's most popular CAD/MCAD programs.

Your take-away

This course is a great way to help you:
• Familiarize yourself with the parametric design philosophy of SolidWorks;
• Understand the basic principles of parametric modeling, including geometric and dimensional constraints;
• Learn basic techniques for creating and modeling CAD geometry;
• Produce models and drawings required for manufacturing;
• Develop professional-level skills and techniques.

Our approach

In this course, you'll gain real-world knowledge, experience and insights through lectures from an experienced pro who'll show you the ropes. More excitingly, you'll learn through hands-on projects using the most powerful equipment and the very latest software. You can't get skills like this online.
