Catalog Description:
Untitled document
Basic principles of engineering graphics including: orthographic projection, descriptive geometry, and geometric tolerancing are introduced with an emphasis on solutions to mechanical and civil engineering problems in three dimensional space.  AutoCAD coverage emphasizes 3D solid modeling, but includes 2D commands and working drawings in a project and oral presentation format.  Engineering group design processes are introduced and applied using design contests.

MATH 27 (formerly MATH 57) with a grade of 'C' or better.

Recommended Preparation:
Course Completion of APTECH 46 ( or APTECH 56 or ENGR 56 or ENGR 22)
