MT 102|SolidWorks(R) I

5 Credits

This course is an introduction to SolidWorks(R) design software. The intent is to guide students through the software so they develop an understanding of how parts are designed as well as the concepts of blueprint construction/reading. The principles of geometric construction and constraints such as perpendicularity, concentricity, and parallelism are stressed so students are able to understand the workings of a precision model.

Prerequisite

Prerequisite: BPR 105 or 110 or equivalent, and CA 100 or CS 101, or instructor permission.

MT 201|Introduction to Engineering Material Science

5 Credits

As an introductory course, the goal is to learn the fundamental nature of engineered materials, as applied to a Machine Technology Certificate or as a qualifying transfer class to bachelor program at a four-year institution. Instruction begins with the basics of how materials are organized on the atomic, microscopic, and macroscopic levels, how and why these produce a finished project. Though this course is more practical to the common processes used today, it also introduces new trends in materials manufacturing for sustainability, automation, and some of the recent developments in materials science using polymers, composites, ceramics, and advanced metal alloys. Materials science and engineering is an exciting field and an understanding of it is vital for technologists and engineers alike.
