(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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
