Course Objectives

The objective of this course is to help students acquire a basic knowledge of engineering computing and technical drawing by helping students to learn:

  • Problem-solving analysis
  • Flow charting, coding, debugging and testing
  • Displaying computer results using text, graphical outputs, and computer aided design programs
  • Working in teams and benefiting from active-collaborative learning
  • Drafting skills for conforming to the standards of technical drafting, including standard views and dimensioning
  • Analysis of parts for performance, including type of fit, tolerances, allowance, and clearance.

The skills learned through this course are also exercised through conducting a group project.
