Learn SolidWorks Inside and Out
Used in a wide cross section of manufacturing markets, SolidWorks is a solid modeling computer-aided design program that allows professionals design from robots to solar-powered vehicles.
Students in this course will learn the Computer Aided Design and Analysis Software, SolidWorks, 3D modeling and best design practices. Through labs participants will acquire hands-on experience in building parts, assemblies, and creating technical drawings. They will be able to perform Finite Element, Motion and Fluid Analysis. In addition, they will have the opportunity to take the Certified SolidWorks Associate (CSWA) exam.
This course offers practical knowledge and instructions using SolidWorks while preparing students for the Certified SolidWorks Associate Exam (CSWA) exam.
