VI. Catalog Course Description
This course introduces students to engineering graphics. Topics include: terms, symbols, dimensioning, tolerancing, orthographic, auxiliary, and pictorial views, development and interpretation of engineering drawings, solution of engineering problems using both free-hand and computer aided drafting techniques. It is a foundation course for students pursuing a degree in engineering.
VII. Required Course Content and Direction
  1. Course Learning Goals

    Students will:

    1. develop skills in understanding and applying spatial relationships to engineering applications;
    2. analyze and apply drawing and pictorial representation as a quick and specific means of communication;
    3. analyze and apply state of the art computer aided drafting techniques to the representation of engineering applications;
    4. communicate using graphical drawing and computer aided drafting techniques; and
    5. analyze and explain the economic, societal, environmental, and ethical responsibilities of a professional engineer.
  2. Planned Sequence of Topics and/or Learning Activities

    The following topics are presented:

    1. professional aspects of drawing: meaning of terms, symbols, and conventional practices
    2. methods and uses of free-hand sketching
    3. origin and function of the orthographic axis system of drawing
    4. pictorial methods of representation, with emphasis on isometric and oblique axis systems
    5. methods and uses of auxiliary views and the theory behind the technique
    6. techniques of graphical, three-dimensional descriptive geometry. Both theory and practice using both free-hand and computer aided drafting
    7. completion of a dimensioned engineering drawing from a three dimensional model of an engineering part or assembly using both free-hand and computer-aided drafting techniques in order to analyze and explain the economic, societal, environmental, and ethical responsibilities of a professional engineer
  3. Assessment Methods for Course Learning Goals

    The evaluative tools may include any or all of the following as specified by the individual instructor's syllabus: objective examinations, research reports, laboratory reports, online activities and discussion, quizzes, projects, and papers.
  4. Reference, Resource, or Learning Materials to be used by Student:

    Students use educational resources as approved by the department and specified in the individual instructor's syllabus.
