Course TEC552- Technical Drawing 1
Technology influences every aspect of our lives. Technical Drawing and Design (CADD) is an important form of communication, vital for the inception, development and communication of ideas related to technology, industry and scientific development.
Our involvement and participation in course TEC552 will provide us with the following experiences:
* Mastery and understanding of drafting concepts and the use of the drafting tools.
* Use and understanding of geometry related to technical drawing and actual production parts.
* Understanding and practice of a variety of projection styles of drawing as related to practical applications.
* Use of proper dimensioning and sectioning practices.
* Use of two-dimensional and three-dimensional Computer-Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) as a "real-world" tool.
* Basic 3-D printing from student-created designs.
* Knowledge on careers related to technical drawing and design.
* Use of "real world" measuring tools and teaming concepts to create production models.
There are two broad categories of student work evaluation: assessments (weighted 75%) and class participation (weighted 25%). The assessment category typically is comprised of projects, quizzes, tests, performance tasks, reflection papers, lab reports, and some reflective writing. The class participation category can include some reflective writings, journal entries, handling of lab maintenance responsibilities, and other typically routine tasks.
