Design and Fabrication 1202 requires students to acquire knowledge of the design process and develop hands-on fabrication skills through a combination of classroom instruction and shop laboratories. This course should be of interest to students with varied academic abilities and hands-on skills. The acquisition of practical skills and knowledge is emphasized from design concept to finished product being addressed. This approach allows students to explore various career options in design from skilled trades to engineering. Students will learn how to use Solidworks, a computer aided design (CAD) software program that is used in developing 3D representations of objects.
