Manchester Community College Design Project for Rapid Prototyping (CAD225)

This course introduces the design process through virtual and physical prototyping. Participants will study topics fundamental to rapid prototyping and automated fabrication, including the generation of suitable CAD models, current rapid prototyping fabrication technologies, their underlying material science, the use of secondary processing, and the impact of these technologies on society. The class will cover the design process, problem solving methods, interdisciplinary team work, current industrial practice, and manufacturing process capabilities. The course emphasizes hands-on learning using the rapid prototyping process by the actual design and fabrication of a part. Prerequisite: CAD210M or CAD220M.

Quality Note:
Hezel Associates provided the 3rd party curriculum review for the AMPed NH TAACCCT grant project. Courses were reviewed for quality by Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) by assessing the (1) clarity and appropriateness of learning objectives, (2) alignment of learning objectives to course activities and materials, (3) logical sequencing of course content, (4) availability of active learning opportunities, (5) use of formative feedback for students, and (6) presence of summative assessment and its alignment with course objectives. SMEs were selected based on credentials and experience in instructional and curricular design and evaluation.
Quality of Subject Matter was assured by:
  • Consultations during development of instructional materials
  • Participation as an ongoing member of team developing the instructional materials
  • SME Quality Report is posted in Skills Commons
Quality of Online/Hybrid Course Design assured by:
  • None
Course Note:
Computer Aided Design Certificate
