CNTC-1012Dimensional Metrology
More Information

This course focuses on measuring and gauging geometric tolerances - the fundamentals of dimensional metrology. In addition to learning basic skills of using inspection tools and equipment required to perform basic open set-ups on a variety of parts that are typical of what is found in industry, students will learn to identify appropriate features on various parts and understand how they are related. They will apply principles of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing to the inspection process following the ANSI Y14.5 M-1982 Standard. As well, the methodology for proper verification, safe and proper use of lab equipment and facilities, and final report format will be modeled.

CNTC-1015Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing
More Information

Presenting fundamental concepts of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing according to ANSI Y14.5M-1982 Standards, this 'hands-on' course teaches students how to properly apply the principles of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing to the manufacturing and inspection process. Students will inspect various parts using proper quality control methods.

As well, this course will equip students with the knowledge and skills to communicate effectively with potential employers.

MANU-1001Computer Aided Drafting 1
More Information

This course introduces students to computer-aided drafting using AutoCAD software. Students will learn the commands, methods, and tools for producing, viewing, and editing two-dimensional and three-dimensional models.

MANU-1007Capstone Project(s)
More Information

Students undertake projects generated by students, industry, or faculty. A capstone project involves researching the project, developing and designing solutions, and organizing a thesis/report to document the project work. Students are expected to create detail and assembly drawings, develop and deliver oral presentations on the capstone project, and defend the overall project design by: working effectively on research and development; communicating graphically using computer-aided drafting (CAD) and drafting conventions; using advanced computer-aided software to develop products for manufacture; using application software in the solution of problems; applying scientific and mathematical principles to the analysis and solution of problems; applying management principles to the solution of problems; producing formal reports and documents; and communicating effectively in written and oral modes.

MANU-1009Manufacturing
More Information

In this course, students are introduced to a manufacturing (mass production) environment. Students become aware of the variety of materials and processes that are used in manufacturing industries. The course also introduces students to a number of practical considerations and common methods and philosophies that are used in the quantity manufacturing world. Students will have the opportunity to transfer theoretical learning to practical applications through labs and a project.

MANU-1012PC Fundamentals
More Information

This course is designed to introduce students to computer applications using a 'hands-on' approach.

MANU-1035Industry Training
More Information

Students are placed in an engineering office of a firm that produces manufacturing CAD drawings or performs related tasks for a four-week period. During this time, students gain exposure to the production of working drawings and other related drafting duties, and to drafting office procedures. At the end of industrial training, students are expected to: understand and practice professional ethics; apply accepted business practices and procedures to industrial situations; communicate graphically using computer-aided drafting (CAD) and drafting conventions; identify and comply with industrial safety standards; communicate effectively using acceptable industrial terminology.

MANU-1038Engineering Drawing 1
More Information

Drafting principles and conventions required to produce working drawings will be covered. Sketching techniques will initially be used to develop these basic concepts, and as the students' knowledge of AutoCAD increases, these drawings will be done by computer. Some of the areas to be studied include: multi-view projection, pictorials, sections, auxiliary views, fasteners, and more.

MANU-2000Computer Aided Drafting 2
More Information

This course introduces students to computer-aided design and concepts in 3D solids modeling and parametric modeling. Students learn to build and manipulate intelligent 3D solid models creating multi-view engineering drawings and assemblies models. Autodesk Inventor as well as additional software will be used for production of these models and drawings.

MANU-2039Engineering Drawing 2
More Information

Industry relies on engineering drawings for the production and assembly of all manufactured parts. This course deals with detail, assembly, weldment, and development drawings used to transmit this information. All drawings will be created using AutoCAD software.

MATH-1116Mathematics 1
More Information

This course reviews the four mathematical operations in concepts such as whole numbers, fractions, and decimals using a calculator and without a calculator. Students also learn to apply principles of conversions using metric and imperial measurements, principles of percent, ratio and proportion and right-angle triangle. Students will be introduced to calculations involving perimeter, area and volume and will learn how to manipulate equations and formulae to solve shop-related problems. In most instances, students will apply mathematical knowledge to solve shop-related problems accurately and independently.

MATH-2119Mathematics 2
More Information

This unit introduces the student to the principles of trade mathematics. It consists of a review of math concepts and continues with computed measure of plane and three-dimensional objects.
