Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.

Pre-requisites and Co-requisites


Course Description

This unit of competency sets out the knowledge and skills required to apply modelling techniques to create 3D solid model assemblies for computer processing and presentation purposes. This includes applications in CAD, computer graphics and animation, rapid prototyping, medical testing, and visualisation of scientific research.

Other Resources

Class Hand outs will give you step by step how create part.Most of the hand outs will be available in the blackboard and in the Student Drive Under the topic of Solid works Trainning.

Computer Lab.

Overview of Assessment

Various written assignments/tests and practical exercises/projects 100%

Assessment Tasks

As This Course is based on Competency Method, Student Must demonstrate in the class about their competency.

The Break up of assessement Task will be:-

1. Class Exercise  - 20Marks.

2.Project -1(Assembly -1) -20 marks

3.  Project -2 (Assembly -2) -20 marks

4.    Project -3 (Assembly -3) -40 marks.

It is very Important that Project three Should be Done in the class and Prove thier compentecy to the class teacher. All three project include assembly, simulation and 2D presentation.

Assessment Matrix

Other Information

Students are adviced to attend all the class.  Statics report shows that student who attend more than 80% of thier class can easily prove their compentency.
