Technical drawing programs focus on the necessary skills to create accurate technical drawing and design documents. In addition to practical work to improve artistic skills, students also study the technical side of design, learning how to annotate technical drawings for effective use as guides in the creation process.

This course delivers the skillset in linear or structural modeling that is required to solve structural problems from which you can develop finite element (FE) models for practical applications. It also teaches how results can be correctly interpreted. The course uses an open source FE package in a series of weekly practical sessions where models are constructed for sample problems and results are validated against simplified analytical models or open literature.
The majority of professionals in many branches of mechanical engineering will benefit from adding FEM to their skills array. The ability to develop modeling skills under supervision in a non-critical environment means that skills and techniques can be acquired in a logical, progressive manner....
