DF 284 - CADD Capstone

Credit Hours: 3

This course is designed as a capstone course. Students will apply math, science, and engineering concepts to conceptualize, research, sketch, design, prototype, and document their solutions to individual and team-based design projects. The design projects are intended to engage and challenge the students to develop their problem-solving skills in a hands-on environment while learning how to document and present their solutions. Student projects will require the use of hand sketches and CAD design software to help them develop solutions to the proposed design projects. Prerequisites: Department approval required.

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:


  • explain and demonstrate the design process from concept to completion;
  • create hand sketches and understand their importance in the engineering field;
  • research and prepare initial design ideas using the library and other resources;
  • design a component or assembly to meet a desired need using CAD software;
  • prototype design ideas using a variety of CAD equipment (3-D Printers, Laser);
  • document all design ideas and intent from conception to completion; and
  • present final project information through written reports and oral presentations
