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.
