Design and Drawing for Engineering
Inspired by classes that every Cooper Union engineering student takes in their freshman year, students develop design practices and problem-solving skills through examining the needs of their community. At the same time, students learn sketching, technical drawing and computer aided design and tools and strategies for communicating ideas through words, images, and speech. Meetings with faculty, students and engineers will introduce current problems and the solutions being developed at Cooper Union or at engineering and technology companies. By the end of the program, student teams will identify a problem, design and fabricate a solution, and create a portfolio and presentation to promote how they imagine and engineer a better world.
Students will learn:
- Drawing and Drafting
- Computer Aided Design (CAD)
- Prototyping and fabrication, including 3D printing
- Engineering design and decision-making tools
