Course Syllabus (Summer C 2011) 1. Course Description: Two- and three-dimensional graphical methods of visualizing and communicating features of projects for construction involving parcel boundaries, topography, drainage, site modeling, site development, structures, buildings and objects using both traditional and computer-aided drafting and design techniques. (3 Credits) 2. Course Objective: The purpose of this course is to provide each student with the required tools to visualize a 3-D world and represent it in two dimensions using graphical methods. This is accomplished through the use of manual drawing techniques and Computer-Aided Drafting (CAD) whereby a student will prepare the necessary information in the form of standard engineering drawings. Learning AutoCAD will give students abilities of using their skills in industry. 3. This course satisfies obligation K of the ABET list for accreditation: Use state-of-the-art problem solving tools and techniques necessary for contemporary engineering practice. 4. The course objective is accomplished through the use of manual drawing techniques and Computer-Aided Drafting (CAD) whereby a student will prepare the necessary information in the form of standard engineering drawings. Learning AutoCAD will give students abilities of using their skills in industry. 5.
