ENGR1:  GRAPHICAL COMM AND DESIGN


Course Description

An introduction to the graphical and visual communication of the engineering design process. Topics will include the design process, visualization, free-hand sketching, instrument drawing, scales, orthographic projection, section views, auxiliary views, and dimensioning and tolerancing. Computer based drafting will be used in conjunction with traditional methods to highlight the strengths of multiple communication methodologies. ADVISORY: MATH 1A; may be concurrent.


Learning Outcomes

  • Describe the engineering design process.
  • Describe, compare, and contrast the various views to communicate an engineering design project.
  • Describe, compare, and contrast the fundamental principles of orthographic projection to communicate an engineering design project.
  • Describe, compare, and contrast the fundamental principles of descriptive geometry to communicate the details of geometric shapes necessary in the engineering design process.
  • Describe, compare, contrast, and identify the methods for dimensioning parts and describing allowable production tolerances.
  • Apply and demonstrate appropriate use and competency in the use of computer-aided-drafting software.
