Engineers use drawings to communicate technical information without ambiguity to executives,

fabricators, customers, and each other. As with most things engineers use, engineering drawing has a

well-defined set of standards by which technical drawings are produced. This course introduces the

language of engineering drawing using computer aided design (CAD) software. While AutoCAD and Solid works are important software within this course, this course teaches more than just how to use CAD software. It teaches projections, dimensions, and other foundations of engineering drawing through sketching, a critical skill for engineers. The course also gives the opportunity to apply this new knowledge to creative engineering design projects.
