Additional information available on the Computer Aided Drafting and Design – Mechanical Department website.

The Modeling Design Certificate is designed for students to learn a variety of techniques and skills associated with print reading for computer aided drafting. Students learn to use Creo software to construct, modify, and manage complex parts in 3D space, as well as how to produce 2D drawings from 3D models. The focus is on advanced part creation, drawing manipulation, and documentation. Additionally, students build confidence in 3D thinking and progresses to three-dimensional parameters. Students learn how to use the 3D parametric software SolidWorks to focus on management of design data, advanced assembly, rendering, animation and dynamic simulation and testing a model assembly. Additionally, students learn how to create advanced 3D solid models using 3D printing and 3D scanning technology.

Program Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the Modeling Design certificate program, students should be able to:

  • Produce 2D drawings from 3D solid models
  • Use the SolidWorks and Creo software packages to create advanced models, parts, assemblies, and related documents (e.g., bill of materials, parts lists)
  • Produce parts and assemblies using additive manufacturing/3D printing
