Introduction

The Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) option develops students with the expertise in advanced 3D parametric modeling and in the planning and programming of Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) equipment used for designing and fabricating products and tooling. It builds upon a fundamental understanding of materials, processes, business, and economics introduced in the program. Whether the finished product is an athletic shoe or a jet airplane, the logical set of events that take place to produce that product must be planned and conceived in advance. The option builds upon the fundamental understanding of product form, function, materials, processes, business, and economics introduced in the core MET program.

Why Consider a Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing Option in Manufacturing Engineering Technology Major?

The Manufacturing Engineering Technology - Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing option major is in moratorium and not accepting new students.

The Manufacturing Engineering Technology - Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing Option degree program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

How to Declare (Admission and Declaration Process):

MET majors can declare under a CAD/CAM option. Admission to the Manufacturing Engineering Technology- CAD/CAM Option major is a two phase process. Students initially declare as pre-majors. Admission to full major is determined by academic performance as a pre-major. See the department’s website for details. Students should declare their major early and seek departmental advisement.

Grade Requirements

A grade of C- or better is required for a student’s major or minor courses, and supporting courses for majors and minors.
