Computer Aided Design and Communication KNE111


Develop the ability to prepare and present engineering drawings using graphical drawing techniques and computer aided design (CAD). The unit comprises two separate components. The CAD component focuses on generic computer aided design and presentation skills in two and three dimensions. The drawing component aims to develop students' skills in drawing for engineering design. This component includes drawing two-dimensional representations of objects from different viewing angles, and techniques for sketching, line drawing and perspective, this leading to the development of professional engineering drawings.
