Welcome to Engineering Graphics

As a student of engineering graphics, you will study and learn to apply the tools used to create engineering drawings and models. Even more important, you will also learn the underlying principles and concepts of engineering graphics, such as descriptive geometry. You will also learn the standards and conventions that will enable you to create drawings and models that can be read and accurately interpreted by engineers or technologists anywhere.

The tools used for technical drawing include traditional ones, such as the triangle and the compass, and CAD. Traditional tools are used to make technical drawings by hand, and it takes practice and repetition to become proficient at their use. Although with CAD there is less emphasis on developing good technique, it still requires practice and repetition to attain proficiency.
