Module Title: Engineering Drawing
Module Level: Level 1
Module Credits: 2.50
Academic Year: 2017/18
Semester: SEM2
Originating Department: Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Pre-requisites: N/A
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

engineering applications.

Learning outcomes 
A demonstrate a clear understanding of the standards in engineering drawing;

B master the knowledge of Computer Aided Drafting applications

C apply orthographic projection to view and analyse engineering solids

D propose the structure and representation of engineering components

E apply spatial-visual thought, spatial imagination, exploration and innovation

F master the problem solving and independent learning ability

Method of teaching and learning 
This module will be delivered through a combination of formal lectures, tutorials and supervised practical sessions.
