MET 113 - Engineering Drawing I w/CAD
An introductory course in the fundamentals of engineering drawing and the basics of Computer Aided Drafting (CAD). Manual drafting techniques are integrated with extensive use of AutoCAD. Topics include use of the drawing instruments, geometric construction, freehand sketching, orthographic projection, sectional and auxiliary views and proper dimensioning techniques. CAD topics include file management; command structure; creating, editing and manipulating drawing elements; dimensioning. Students will gain an understanding of engineering drawing concepts by applying them in both manual drafting and AutoCAD assignments.
1 Class Hour, 3 Laboratory Hours
