Technical drawing allows efficient communication among engineers and can be kept as a record of the planning process. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, a technical drawing is a much more effective tool for engineers than a written plan.
Fields of Use:
- Technical drawing is the preferred method of drafting in all engineering fields, including, but not limited to, civil engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and architecture.
Purpose of studying Engineering Drawing
- To develop the ability to produce simple engineering drawing and sketches based on current practice.
- To develop the skills to read manufacturing and construction drawings used in industry.
- To develop a working knowledge of the layout of plant and equipment.
- To develop skills in abstracting information from calculation sheets and schematic diagrams to produce working drawings for manufacturers, installers and fabricators.
