Partners for the Advancement of Collaborative Engineering Education PACE Engineering Design Competition

Project Description: The design project is mainly involving CAD modeling of a real world example but desind by the students specially for the competition. The students apply the skill they learned on Modeling, Assemblies, and drafting.  Some of them may include analysis and animations.  The students are required to select a project on their own and it should be original. They as a team will create the parts and assemblies and present at the competition. CAD modeling/assembly with analysis, of any equipment used in the project.
