Abstract

Engineering colleges face three severe challenges as they attempt to incorporate CAD/CAM into their curricula: Faculty, Curricula Revision and Cost. Each of these can be addressed successfully through the introduction of microcomputer-based CAD/CAM systems. Microcompter-based CAD/CAM should be used for 'mass' teaching of CAD/CAM principles and techniques. When these are mastered in the early years (sophomore and junior) of an engineering curriculum, synthesis of CAD/CAM capabilities and the diversity of engineering principles to which a student is exposed should occur in a capstone design sequence within a 'real world' mainframe CAD/CAM environment.
