    CADD-1037 -  Engineering Drawing & CAD Drafting
    Basic Engineering Sketching and Blueprint Reading plus Inventor. This course is designed to develop basic skills required for subsequent Technician and Technology courses for both Manufacturing and Design. 40% of the course is devoted to Sketching and Blueprint Reading. The remaining 60% will be strictly Inventor.

    CADD-1054 -  Eng. Drawing & BP Reading
    Basic Engineering Sketching and Blueprint Reading. This course is designed to developbasic skills required for Mechanical Engineering Technician.

    CADD-1055 -  CADD Fundamentals
    This course is designed to develop basic skills in using AutoCad (2D) and Inventor (3D) softwareto produce engineering drawings for both design and manufacture of mechanical components.

    COMM-3049 -  Communications for Technology
    This course will develop students' skills inpreparing and writing short and medium-sizedproject-based reports. Students will also developtheir presentation skills.

    ELEC-1089 -  Electrical-Electronic Fundamentals
    This course is designed to provide the Manufacturing student with the necessary electrical fundamentals to understand and be able to communicate effectively, in electrical terminology, with specialists in the electrical industry.

    ENGR-1018 -  Engineering Design I
    This course is an introduction to assembly drawings, weldment drawings, casting drawings and auxiliary views. Dimensioning and tolerancing, threads and fasteners and product modification will also be included. Ferrous metals and plastics is a research taught module.

    ENGR-3010 -  Engineering Design 2
    This course emphasizes machine design in the following areas - linkage and cam design, couplings, and power transmission.

    MACH-1124 -  Machining 1

    This course will provide an outline of the basic machining processes with an emphasis on machine setup and tooling. Calculations for speed, feed rate, machining times and production cost will present an overall view of production machining.

    MATH-1155 -  Math 1
    As the first of two pre-calculus mathematics courses, content covered includes treatmentof data, fundamental algebra, trigonometry and geometry.

    MATH-3048 -  Mathematics 2
    Topics include: mensuration with plane geometric figures and three-dimensional solids, polar coordinates, polar curves, exponents, radicals, logarithms, linear equations, systems of linear equations and associated word problems.
