Drawing, design and geometry of engineering components.
The course introduces drawing standards, develops freehand sketching and visualization skills, and provides a basic understanding of engineering components, their graphical representation and correct detail form design. The course seeks to make students aware of the design decision making process and methods for systematic design concept selection.
o An understanding of design and the design process.o An understanding of mechanical engineering components and how those components combine to carry structural loads, transmit motion and energy and work effectively as an assembly.o Engineering sketching and drawing skills.o Visualisation skills to handle 3-D thinking tasks, projections and sectional views which the designer needs to visually describe a design.o Skills in concept generation.o An appreciation of methods for systematic design concept selection.
