Subject Title
Electro-Mechanical Design I

Subject Description
EMD701 introduces students to SolidWorks mechanical design software from Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks Corporation. Students will learn to develop 3D models of mechanical designs and the use of parametric design techniques.
Fundamental mechanical design concepts are reviewed, specifically reviewing methodology for plastic and sheet metal design. The creation of 2D drawings of the parametric models will be examined, together with assembly drawings.

Credit Status
One subject credit in the Applied Electronics Design Post Diploma program.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:

1.         Transform hand sketched drawings from paper to Solid Modeler.
2.         Visualize the 2D parts into 3D solid.
3.        Sketch 2D engineering drawings on datum planes with the understanding of the orientation of a co-ordinate system.
4.         Analyze electro-mechanical engineering drawings and then apply a systematic approach to create feature based, parametric solid parts and assemblies using CAD software such as SolidWorks.
5.         Explain the concept of design intent in term of fit, form and function.
6.         Describe the significance on display options used in Solid Modeling.
7.         Show how to navigate the SolidWorks and perform basic sketching techniques in 2D and building 3D solid models using sketcher, select, refit, circle, rectangle, trimetric, extrude protrusion/cut, symmetry constraint, delete segment, trim, spline, revolve, sweep, blend, fillet,  chamfer, mirror, pattern round, hole, set reference lines using centerline features and etc.
8.        Apply ribs on plastic design and shell on sheet metal design
9.         Explain the parent/child relationship in a parametric design model.

Academic Integrity
Seneca upholds a learning community that values academic integrity, honesty, fairness, trust, respect, responsibility and courage. These values enhance Seneca's commitment to deliver high-quality education and teaching excellence, while supporting a positive learning environment. Ensure that you are aware of Seneca's Academic Integrity Policy which can be found at: http://www.senecacollege.ca/about/policies/academic-integrity-policy.html Review section 2 of the policy for details regarding approaches to supporting integrity. Section 2.3 and Appendix B of the policy describe various sanctions that can be applied, if there is suspected academic misconduct (e.g., contract cheating, cheating, falsification, impersonation or plagiarism).

Please visit the Academic Integrity website http://open2.senecac.on.ca/sites/academic-integrity/for-students to understand and learn more about how to prepare and submit work so that it supports academic integrity, and to avoid academic misconduct.
