Challenges Associated with Teaching CAD/CAE

Abstract. In this paper, new teaching concepts for studies of mechanical engineering and plant construction are discussed, to prepare students result-oriented for the requirements of modern product development processes. Starting with basics in descriptive und constructional geometry, methods and information technology fundamentals will be taught in coordinated courses, which are required for mastering multidisciplinary product development processes. This includes internships and assignment papers, where a structured approach and the sensible use of various software tools (CAD, analysis, simulation, etc) must be demonstrated. This is accompanied by eLearning tools and multimedia teaching materials on the Internet.

Keywords. CAD education, e-learning, teaching concepts, Knowledge-Based Engineering, CAD-CAM
