Unit Code: CEB503
Unit Name: Computer Aided Drafting and Modelling
Description: Engineers are expected to design reliable, affordable and sustainable systems and present conceptual drawings with neat, clear, and understandable detailing. You will need the technical skills in research, design and detailed drawing of engineering projects like roads, airports, railways, buildings, bridges, dams, drainage systems and subdivision scheme plans in civil engineering projects, machines, robots, production equipment, gear boxes, transmission mechanisms, turbines in mechanical engineering projects, electrical circuit, transmission, electronics, transformers in electrical engineering. This unit will enable you to develop your knowledge in 2D and 3D computer aided environments. You will learn to use the computer aided drafting and modelling programmemes in many different ways and start to develop techniques that improve your speed and accuracy in engineering design projects. The unit provides you with the fundamental knowledge and skills of drawing using AutoCAD software, which is mainly used in a wide range of industries around the world.
