Solid Edge Sketching Fundamentals Course

At the end of this course, students will be able to recognize and create artistic 2D shapes and patterns. These 2D sketches will form the foundation for the follow-up class that introduces students to 3D artistic mechanical design.

3D CAD Fundamentals Course

At the end of this, course students will have a solid creative understanding of 3D part modeling.

Generative Modeling Course

Generative design is a radical departure from conventional design practices and is by definition the creation of shapes decided by a set of rules, or in other words, software algorithms. In this course, students will learn how to optimize products for minimal mass with goal-driven generative design.
