Graphics for Engineers

ENGR - 181

Credits: 2

Catalog Year: 2017

This course introduces students to graphic skills associated with engineering design, particularly those related to computer-aided design and drafting (CADD). The course provides the student with an understanding of design concepts, features and limitations of a micro-computer based CAD system. The majority of the course time consists of laboratory exercises. In the context of design, the course will cover fundamental aspects of engineering graphics including elementary projection, lines and planes, auxiliary views, edge views, oblique projection, angle between planes, angles between lines and planes, and intersection and revolution. Graphics will stress solutions of elementary design problems.
