This unit will develop the drafting skills and design knowledge of the student. At completion, the student will be competent to obtain any required information from engineering drawings produced to international standards and conventions. The student will also be able to produce drawings of an adequate standard using CAD tools for the manufacture of marine components and its system. Besides, they will possess knowledge of design and drafting principles which will enable maximum benefit to their intermediate and advance engineering unit.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.

- Interpret marine machinery and system drawings.
- Use general engineering terms and symbols and in particular those used in marine engineering to simple design tasks.
- Use CAD to produce working drawings of basic components of marine machinery to demonstrate the ability to apply the principles of projection using relevant Australian standards.
- Demonstrate an operational and proficient level of communication through sketches components in the first and third angle projection to the required Australian Standards.
