- 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
Course Learning Goals
- develop skills in understanding and applying spatial relationships to engineering applications;
- analyze and apply drawing and pictorial representation as a quick and specific means of communication;
- analyze and apply state of the art computer aided drafting techniques to the representation of engineering applications;
- communicate using graphical drawing and computer aided drafting techniques; and
- analyze and explain the economic, societal, environmental, and ethical responsibilities of a professional engineer.
Planned Sequence of Topics and/or Learning Activities
The following topics are presented:
- professional aspects of drawing: meaning of terms, symbols, and conventional practices
- methods and uses of free-hand sketching
- origin and function of the orthographic axis system of drawing
- pictorial methods of representation, with emphasis on isometric and oblique axis systems
- methods and uses of auxiliary views and the theory behind the technique
- techniques of graphical, three-dimensional descriptive geometry. Both theory and practice using both free-hand and computer aided drafting
- 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
