Course detail

Design and CAD

FSI-4KCAcad. year: 2019/2020

The course introduces the students to the basics of the design methodology in the application on the assembly unit, i.e. design unit, including task assignment, information collection, variant design, optimal design, component and assembly drawing, list of items and with technical report. Everything with the possibility of using CAD programs and their calculation tools for designing the dimensions of standard machine components.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will learn creative thinking within the individually assigned machine design task with the possibility to apply his / her original solution to the problem. They will be familiar with design engineering when designing a design unit, including task assignment, information collection, variant design, optimal design, component and assembly drawing, list of items and with technical report. There will also be familiar with CAD support in the field of computational tools for the design dimensions of standard machine components.
