Industrial Engineering (I E)


I E 114  CATIA 2-D  (4)
Focuses on using CATIA (Computer Aided Three-Dimensional Interactive Application) software. Teaches file structure and management, 2-D and 3-D concepts, and the creation of elementary elements (points, lines, curves) that are used in future solids creation. Gains a working knowledge of how to move geometry within a model, change the graphical characteristics of existing geometry, and analyze and establish model standards. PREREQUISITE: Eligible for both ENGL 081 and READ 104; or instructor's permission.
I E 189  Basic Metallurgy  (4)
Introduces the basic structure of metals and the effects of alloying elements, mechanical working and heat on the strength and other properties of the metal. Students perform testing procedures for evaluating strength, hardness and heat treating processes in the laboratory.

I E 204  Statics and Strengths  (5)
Introduces the concepts of forces, moments, and equilibrium; and the application of these concepts to the determination of stresses and deformations in simple structural members. Includes the analyses of beams, columns and tension members. Involves some materials testing. PREREQUISITE: MATH 116T or equivalent.
I E 210  CATIA Modeling  (7)
Focuses on creating 2-D and 3-D geometry using CATIA (Computer Aided Three Dimensional Interactive Application) software. Teaches commands for creating and editing drawings. Uses CATIA software. Course covers three modules: 2-D geometry creating and editing; 3-D parametric solids modeling and editing; and 3-D parametric surface modeling and editing. CAD instruction emphasizes methods for creating documents that are accurate and accomplished in a timely manner. PREREQUISITE: D T 135 and 236.

I E 214  CATIA 3-D Solids  (5)
Focuses on using CATIA (Computer Aided Three-Dimensional Interactive Application) software. Teaches creation and modification of solid modeling using CATIA. Students gain an understanding of the history of solids creation and the ability to extract elements from the history of solid bodies. CAD instruction emphasizes methods for creating documents that are accurate and accomplished in a timely manner. PREREQUISITE: I E 114 or 114.2.
I E 215  CATIA 3-D Surfacing  (4)
Focuses on using CATIA (Computer Aided Three-Dimensional Interactive Application) software. Teaches creation and modification of surface modeling using CATIA. Students learn to use the variety of curves available in CATIA and how they interact with different disciplines, such as SOLIDS, N/C toolpath creation, and volume creation. CAD instruction emphasizes methods for creating documents which are accurate and accomplished in a timely manner. PREREQUISITE: I E 214 or 214.2.
