Bringing SolidWorks Course into the Community

NTI School of Technology at Globe University reaches out to the local community by hosting a five-week SolidWorks 3D class taught by Pam Schumacher, mechanical engineering technology program chair. The class will be held Tuesday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., January 22 to February 19 at Mahtomedi High School.

NTI School of Technology“This class offers a sneak peek into the Engineering Drafting and Design (EDD) program at NTI School of Technology Globe University in Woodbury,” said Schumacher. “In this program, students can earn an associate degree in as little as 18 months in a field that has a large job market in the Twin Cities.”NTI School of Technology

Schumacher is a certified SolidWorks professional and earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mechanical engineering from Texas A&M University.

In the SolidWorks short course, students will be introduced to basic 3D modeling, sketching exercises and assemblies.  They will learn how to quickly sketch 2D concepts as well as form the 3D parts from those sketches. Multiple parts will then be combined to make a 3D assembly of parts and 2D orthographic and pictorial drawings.
