None.
 


Course Description

This course provides an introduction into engineering design and communication through the use of computer aided design (CAD) software. The principles and methods of engineering design are introduced, and the critical role of graphic communication within the design process is described. Visual communication of engineering designs through technical drawings is extensively covered, with reference to the relevant engineering standards. The use of CAD software to generate computer models and technical drawings is presented and supported by computer-based tutorials.
