Engineering Graphics and Descriptive Geometry
Offered in alternating Fall semesters
The student will learn to communicate their design ideas and solve engineering design problems through the principles of engineering graphics. Also emphasized is the development of three dimensional visualization skills. Graphics principles including orthographic projection, auxiliary views, and dimensioning are reviewed. There skills are them applied to the solution of true size, shape, and clearance problems. The class will conclude with a design project. The primary drawing methods are freehand sketching and CAD.
The 'user friendly' definition:
Basic drafting conventions and three-dimensional visualization skills from two dimensional views; how to solve three-dimensional geometry problems by graphical means; how to document a design idea, and a design project. Yhis is also a good class for a student who wants to learn computer-aided-drafting because the computer is the main drawing tool. Freehand sketching is also covered. Students need to take this class when it is offered, because it is only offered every other year.
