ECAD 2075 - Advanced SolidWorks
Hours/Week: Lecture 1 Lab 4
Course Description: This course covers advanced concepts, tools, and features of the SolidWorks software. Topics include 3D Sketching, Composite Curves, advanced Sweep and Loft, Surface modeling, Sheet Metal and Weldments, Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Simulation, Mold Tools, Top-Down Assemblies, and SolidWorks Certification preparation. The hands-on nature of this course builds the foundation for continued training, self-instruction, and future certifications.
