Unit Code: MCD518

Unit Name: Engineering Graphics

Description: Engineering technologists are expected to be able to generate a range of graphic representations of an idea, concept or entity. In this course, you will use engineering lettering and geometric construction, prepare engineering graphs with computer software, use sketching methods, use basic descriptive geometry and its applications, and develop orthographic drawings, dimensioning, pictorial drafting, auxiliary views and sectional views. You will also construct engineering technical drawings using the orthographic projection method. The second part of this course focuses on the applications of computer-aided drafting using AutoCAD. Extensive hands-on training and lecture sessions will provide the knowledge you need to produce industrial standard CAD drawings, use 2-D drafting and draw from 3-D models or vice versa. You will follow standard conventions while improving your skill and efficiency in using a CAD system.

Learning Target Outcomes: On successful completion of this course, students should be able to: 1. Identifies relevant practical constraints and requirements. 2. Demonstrates creativity to propose possible solutions. 3. Develops/designs at least one possible solution. 4. Documents a preferred solution and presents the findings in a coherent visual form. 5. Understands the range of CAD tools available, selects a suitable tool. 6. Applies CAD tools, check the results for validity. 7. Prepares engineering documents including sketches, drawings and technical instructions.
