Advanced Design for Manufacturing

Short-Term Certificate

This certificate has been designed for the student that wants to pursue a career in Mechanical Engineering as a Mechanical Drafter or Commercial/Industrial Designer. The student will use computer programs that relate to CAD (Computer Aided Design) including SolidWorks, TinkerCAD, Meshmixer and Fusion 360 to construct rapid prototypes from basic 3D part creation to advanced surfacing models used in industries such as Aerospace. Students complete 19 credits, resulting in an Advanced Design for Manufacturing Certificate
