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.
