Course Description
This course is intended for students proceeding to studies in Applied Science/Engineering. This course covers key technical drawing topics such as orthographic projections, technical sketching and engineering drawings. Students produce both hand and computer drawings. This is a project based course where students learn the role of technical drawing in project design. This course replaces APSC1110. No double credit will be granted for students who complete both APSC1110 and ENGR1110.
Course Content
  1. Introduction to Projection
  2. Orthographic Sketching from Pictorial
  3. Orthographic Sketching from Object
  4. Missing Views (isometric and orthographic)
  5. Dimensioning and Tolerances
  6. Sectioning
  7. Auxiliary Drawings
  8. Engineering process and other special topics
  9. Group Design Process
  10. Individual Midterm Design Project
  11. Final Design Project
