Aims and Fit of Module
Engineering drawing is an application oriented subject that introduces the preparation, representation
and reading of engineering drawings. It is an important document in industry for design, manufacture,
utilization and service, often recognized as the graphical language of engineers; therefore, all
engineers should know how to read, speak and write it. This module is introduced to provide the
fundamentals of Engineering Drawing and the design process, including graphical theory, standards
and conventions of drawing, computer aided tools for drawing and the use of drawings in electrical
A. Demonstrate a clear understanding of the standards in engineering drawing.
B. Apply orthographic projection to view and analyze engineering solids.
C. Propose the isometric representation of engineering components.
D. Apply spatial-visual thought, spatial imagination, exploration and innovation.
Method of teaching and learning
The teaching philosophy of the module follows very much the philosophy of Syntegrative Education. This has meant that the teaching delivery pattern, which follows more intensive block teaching, allows more meaningful contribution from industry partners. This philosophy is carried through also in terms of assessment, with reduction on the use of exams and increase in coursework, especially problem-based assessments that are project focused. The delivery pattern provides space in the semester for students to concentrate on completing the assessments.
This module will be delivered through a combination of formal lectures, seminars, tutorials and supervised practical sessions.
