Rationale
Computers have become inevitable in today era and find their application in various stages of product development. This course intends to introduce students to use of computers in the phases of product design viz. conceptualization, geometric modelling, graphical representation and finite element analysis.
Course Outcome
1. Understand and appreciate use of computer in product development.
2. Apply algorithms of graphical entity generation.
3. Understand mathematical aspects of geometrical modelling.
4. Understand and use finite element methods for analysis of simple components.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
