    Course module description:

    Engineering design require a combination of organization, analysis, and communication

    skills. Engineering graphics is the primary medium for communicating design concepts and

    is an important tool for analyzing engineering problems. This course aims at developing the

    skills needed for documenting designs using drawings and for performing graphical analysis

    of two dimensional and three dimensional problems. Manual and computer aided methods of

    graphical analysis and communication covered. The course lays the foundation for acquiring

    the skills that when collectively applied are known as reverse engineering.

    Course module objectives:

    At completing this module the student should be able to:

    - Understand the engineering drawing fundamentals.

    - Free hand sketches.

    - Be familiar with the main commands in AutoCAD.
