Total Work-Based Experience Hours: 0

Course Description:
Coursework will build on basic skills and focus on using computer-aided design software to develop technical drawings. Topics will include advanced orthographics, auxiliary views, section views, representation of threading, and the application of fits & tolerancing in dimensioning. Students will develop the fundamental skills and reasoning necessary for interpreting and clearly describing technical information according to industry-accepted practices. This knowledge will create an awareness of the importance of standardization and communication in everyday life.

Prerequisites: Engineering Graphics I (CAD 155), Intro to CAD (CAD 101)
