Course Description

Introduces manual and computer-aided drafting including hand sketching, drafting standards, pictorial drawings, and dimensioning. Includes creation of 2-D drawings and 3-D solid models with AutoCAD. Prerequisites: Department approval or ENGR 101. Audit available.

Intended Outcomes for the course

Upon completion of the course students should be able to:

  1. Sketch two-dimensional orthographic drawings and three-dimensional isometric views.
  2. Create and modify two-dimensional orthographic drawings using AutoCAD software, complete with construction lines, dimensions, and layers, conforming to industry standards.
  3. Create three-dimensional solid models using AutoCAD software, and generate paper space layouts from model space geometry.

Outcome Assessment Strategies

Individual and full class discussion; lab drawing assignments; exams; and final project deliverables may be used to assess

Course Content (Themes, Concepts, Issues and Skills)

Themes, concepts, and issues:

  1. Civil, industrial, manufacturing, mechanical and other engineering students must be able to visualize solid objects     to succeed in         subsequent mechanics and design courses.
  2. Engineers need to be able to communicate with each other, and with manufacturing and construction personnel, using     graphical         representations of physical objects.
  3. Two-dimensional and solid modeling software is widely used in the engineering professions.
  4. Many engineering graduates enter the workplace by performing manual and computerized graphics manipulations.


  1. Orthographic projections.
  2. Types and priorities of lines.
  3. Auxiliary views.
  4. Sectional views.
  5. Isometric drawing.
  6. Dimensioning drawings.
  7. Absolute, relative, and polar coordinates.
  8. Drawing limits, snap, grid, ortho, zoom, osnap, layers.
  9. Fillet, chamfer, move, copy, mirror, offset, extend, array.
  10. Properties, polyline, stretch, rotate, blocks, external references.
  11. User Coordinate System (UCS), viewports, extrude, revolve.
  12. Solids commands: cylinder, sphere, box, union, subtract, intersection.

Competencies and skills:
The student will be able to:

  1. Communicate effectively using manual and computerized graphical techniques.
  2. Demonstrate competency using AutoCAD graphics software.
  3. Create solid models for use in sophomore, junior, and senior engineering courses.
  4. Visualize three-dimensional solids from two-dimensional pictures.
  5. Create a portfolio of drawings to demonstrate their abilities to potential employers.
