DCAD 4003 - Senior Project

Level: 
Lower
Credits: 
3
Description: 

This course shall be considered a capstone project for the authentic assessment of the curriculum. The student shall select a project that shall challenge the student and demonstrate various abilities and skills acquired in their previous classes. This project shall include an oral presentation along with a written report and a demonstration of their chosen project. This demonstration may include all associated drawings, a finished part of their design, and an electronic "slide show". This course is designed as a research/lab course to design/improve a consumer product.

DCAD 3104 - Advanced Mechanical Layout

Credits: 
4
Level: 
Lower
Prerequisites: 

Description: 

This course will address advanced layout techniques and practices that are typical in the design industry. Students will be presented with design concepts and will use problem solving techniques to accomplish tasks. The course includes the study of power transfer systems such as couplings, chain and sprocket drives, and the use of motors and bearings. Instruction in the application of clutches, and their uses in machine design, will also be stressed.
