Course Description

This unit applies to any of the full range of engineering disciplines. All work is carried out under supervision and all specifications, dimensions and tolerances are predetermined. The unit covers application of introductory drafting skills to select and apply drawing protocols.

Manual drafting or computer-aided design (CAD) drawing equipment may be used.

If CAD skills are required, MEM30031A Operate computer-aided design (CAD) system to produce basic drawing elements, should be selected.

Drawings are completed to Australian Standard (AS) 1100.101–1992 Technical drawing – General principles.
