Details of Learning Activities
The purpose of this module is to provide competency based training in aerospace drawing practices. This module also facilitates articulation into Aerospace and engineering degree courses.
This module is suitable for participants who have:
• Well developed writing skills
• Basic knowledge of aircraft industry drawings.
They may have supervisory responsibilities, which vary from limited to significant.
The Students will participate in activities such as practical drawing ,assignments and exams.
