What You Will Learn

This certificate comprises of three courses that provides participants to learn the principles and capabilities of CAD through three dimensional (3D) solid modeling of engineering components and assembly. Focus on hands-on practice for basic PCB design, PCB fabrication and technical writing skills.


Computer-Aided 3D Design

This module aims to help the participants in the application of the drafting concepts and modeling techniques for development of product models in the design process. Participants will learn the principles and capabilities of CAD through three dimensional (3D) solid modeling of engineering components and assembly. An assignment is used to consolidate the concepts and techniques learnt from the CAD module.

Electrical & Electronic Drawing & CAD

The main objectives of this module are to introduce participants to the techniques of PCB computer-aided design, and to provide opportunities for the acquisition of practical skills in electronic project design. Participants will learn the planning, development, construction and testing of electronic prototypes. The focus of the module is on hands-on practice for basic PCB design, PCB fabrication and technical writing skills. Fault finding on electronic circuits, an essential skill in construction, is also introduced.

Mechanical Design

Design The module aims to provide participants with the knowledge on how to design, analyze and select mechanical systems components used in machine and system design. Topics include selection of motor, coupling, gears, bearing and chain drive. Concept on dimension tolerance is also covered. Through the combination of lectures, tutorials assessments and project work, the module aims to prepare participants to a level where they can undertake an engineering design problem in a methodical and professional manner.
