Engineering Graphics I

This foundation course focuses on topics related to the creation of engineering drawings via 2D CAD using AutoCAD. The course begins with an introduction to AutoCAD and the basic drawing and editing commands then moves on to orthographic view layout, layers, and appearance. The last part of the course deals with layouts, basic dimensioning, and drawing annotation. Since it is an integral part of engineering work, the course also includes work with engineering sketches and/or manually prepared drawings.
