ECAD 2080 - Design Project

Credits: 2
Hours/Week: Lecture 1 Lab 2
Course Description: This course introduces students to various design methodologies such as Concurrent Engineering, Design for Manufacture (DFM), Design for Assembly (DFA), Green Design, and others. Students apply these methodologies to a design project of their own by creating a CAD model and prototype of the design.
