Program Outcomes

Upon successful completion of all program requirements, graduates will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate a thorough understanding of engineering graphics and conventional drafting practices such as geometric constructions, orthographic, projection, isometric, section, detail, auxiliary views, and geometric dimensioning and tolerancing.
  2. Starting with an engineering design concept, create 3D geometric models, develop tolerance requirements, perform basic analysis functions under the supervision of a degreed engineer, and produce professionally finished engineering drawings, suitable for use in manufacturing.
  3. Demonstrate a thorough understanding of 3-dimentional wire frame, surface, and solid modeling concepts, procedures, and applications.
  4. Perform basic CNC programming.
