Philadelphia University Faculty of Engineering Department of Communications & Electronics Course Syllabus Course Title: Engineering Drawing Course Level: 1st year Course code: (620121) Course prerequisite (s) and/or corequisite (s): Credit hours: 3 Lecture Time: Tutorial: 1 hour/Week Academic Staff Specifics Academic Staff Specifics Name Rank Office Number Office and Location Hours E-mail Address Course module description: Engineering design require a combination of organization, analysis, and communication skills. Engineering graphics is the primary medium for communicating design concepts and is an important tool for analyzing engineering problems. This course aims at developing the skills needed for documenting designs using drawings and for performing graphical analysis of two dimensional and three dimensional problems. Manual and computer aided methods of graphical analysis and communication covered. The course lays the foundation for acquiring the skills that when collectively applied are known as reverse engineering. Course module objectives: At completing this module the student should be able to: - Understand the engineering drawing fundamentals. - Free hand sketches. - Be familiar with the main commands in AutoCAD.
