Computer Integrated Manufacturing Systems
COMPUTER INTEGRATED MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS (CIM)
Quarter Course (1 unit)
Prerequisites: Introduction to Engineering Design, Principles of Engineering
This course builds upon the computer solid modeling design skills developed in Introduction to engineering Design. Students will be presented with design problems that require the use of Inventor CAD software to develop solutions to problems. Students evaluate the solutions using mass property analysis (study of the relationship among design, function and materials used), make appropriate modifications and use prototyping equipment to produce three-dimensional models of the solutions. This course provides students with the essential knowledge and skills to design, build, and program a robot.
Students will pay a $20.00 materials fee.
