ENGR& 114 - Engineering Graphics

Credits: 5
A beginning lab course focusing on visualization, sketching, and 3-D parametric modeling computer aided drafting (CAD). Introduces the basic design competencies and graphical solutions of spatial problems using basic engineering drawing principles. Provides skills in graphic communication and visualization of 3-D objects, as well as design and problem solving skills. Recommended for all beginning engineering students.

Course Outcomes:
Students who successfully complete this class will be able to:

  1. Develop 3D visualization and sketching skills.
  2. Demonstrate skills in parametric solid modeling.
  3. Translate working knowledge of engineering drawings (orthographic, auxiliary and isometric).

Program Outcomes
  1. Use engineering principles to solve problems related to engineering mechanics.
  2. Analyze a wide variety of physical systems using Newton’s Laws and free body diagrams in 3D space.
  3. Transfer to a Bachelor’s program in Engineering with the necessary aptitude to succeed in upper-division coursework.

College-wide Outcomes
  • Critical Thinking - Critical thinking finds expression in all disciplines and everyday life. It is characterized by an ability to reflect upon thinking patterns, including the role of emotions on thoughts, and to rigorously assess the quality of thought through its work products. Critical thinkers routinely evaluate thinking processes and alter them, as necessary, to facilitate an improvement in their thinking and potentially foster certain dispositions or intellectual traits over time.
  • Responsibility - Responsibility encompasses those behaviors and dispositions necessary for students to be effective members of a community. This outcome is designed to help students recognize the value of a commitment to those responsibilities which will enable them to work successfully individually and with others.
