ROBAI 250 Additive Design & Manufacturing • 5 Cr.


This project-based course introduces the design and analysis of additive design in the context of robotics. Topics include design/testing methodologies and tools. Students design, implement, and evaluate prototypes using additive manufacturing technologies. Prerequisite: PROG 260 and ENGR& 114, both with a C or better.


After completing this class, students should be able to:

  • Develop and validate design specifications in the context of robotics applications
  • Model, design, and analyze design environments
  • Design, manufacture, and test rapid prototypes
  • Assess the effectiveness of rapid prototypes based on performance, energy management, safety and reliability, and make recommendations for improvement
