Prerequisites

MATH 1400

ES 1070 SOLID MODELING I

This course will provide an introduction to solid modeling concepts, focusing on the construction of virtual parts. The course will be taught as a combination of both lectures to introduce a concept and labs to allow the application and practice of the concepts. Familiarity with dimensions, drafting, and working drawings is recommended

3

ES 1080 SOLID MODELING II

This course will provide further study into solid modeling concepts, focusing on the construction of virtual parts. Many of the skills learned in Solid Modeling I will be further developed using advanced techniques. The course will be taught as a combination of both lectures to introduce a concept and labs to allow the application and practice of the concepts. Familiarity with dimensions, drafting, and working drawings is recommended
