Parametric products in mechanical industrial engineering curriculum

Parametric Products in Mechanical & Industrial Engineering Curriculum

  • Since early 1990s:

    • Parametric products are extensively used throughout the curriculum both at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

    • Software products include primarily ProE and ProMechanica.

    • ProE and ProMechanica are installed in all 25 computers in the MIE computing lab center. It is also installed in about 50 of our college-run computers.

    • It is the most widely used software by students in all their design related activities
