STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK AT BUFFALO MAE 177 INTRODUCTION TO ENGINEERING DRAWING DiPirro I. COURSE DESCRIPTION: MAE 177 “Introduction To Engineering Drawing” will provide the student the opportunity to study the following topics: Fundamental principles of orthographic projection theory to provide graphical solutions of Descriptive geometry problems dealing with the spatial relationship of points, lines and planes; Techniques of Technical Sketching; Auxiliary Views; Sectional Views; Dihedral Angles; Design Concepts; A study of Manufacturing Processes, Calculation of Tolerances, Limits and Fits and selected technical terminology required to produce production drawings; Standards and Conventions of size and shape description and Fastener and Thread representation. II: MAJOR GOALS: A. To provide the student with a fundamental background in technical drawing and graphics which will enable him/her to work more effectively in the various fields of engineering, where knowledge of sketching, technical drawing and print reading is essential. B. To create an awareness of, and to provide an understanding of the role that technical drawing and graphics has in our technological society. C. To develop the students understanding of the principles and concepts of Computer Aided Drawing. III MAJOR OBJECTIVES AND EXPECTED OUTCOMES: A. The student will be able to read, understand and produce Engineering Drawings. To produce these drawing, he/she will be able draw or sketch manually & on a CAD system, a complete Engineering Drawing such that the objects drawn can be manufactured or constructed. In doing so, the student will be able to: 1. Draw an object using orthographic projection. 2. Draw objects using a variety of Sectional Views. 3. Draw objects using Auxiliary Views. 4. Calculate Tolerances including Limits and Fits of mating parts. 5. Prepare a Bill of materials. 6. Dimension a drawing. 7. Prepare an Isometric drawing. 8. Be proficient in the use of reference material. 9.
