Computer-Aided Mechanical Engineering
Granted By: Purdue University
Academic Unit: Purdue School of Engineering and Technology
Certificate(s): Graduate Certificate in Computer-Aided Mechanical Engineering
Overview: Many engineers today are required to routinely solve complex problems in fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer, structural mechanics, vibrations, and acoustics, using computational tools such as solid modelers, computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) systems, system simulators, and finite element simulation. The proficiency in using such systems enables engineers to model complex engineering design and to analyze problems competently and efficiently.
