ECAD 1060 - Materials and Manufacturing Process

Credits: 3
Hours/Week: Lecture NoneLab None
Course Description: This is a survey course of the manufacturing processes, materials and properties as pertaining to drafting and design. Materials processes such as casting, forging, machining, welding, forming and molding and how they affect a design or drawing will be explored. Students will be exposed to these processes and how the results of these processes affect drawings through fieldtrips, demonstrations and videos.
MnTC Goals

Prerequisite(s): None
Corequisite(s): None
Recommendation: Arithmetic assessment score of 64 or higher or elementary algebra assessment score of 76 or higher OR assessment score/ACT score placement into MATH 0070  or above OR completion MATH 0030  or MATH 0060  with a grade of C or higher.
