This course booklet provides a range of introductory material to the activity of engineeringdrawing. It is intended primarily for basic tuition in drawing and will be used as such in theFirst Year Design courses in the School of Engineering and Technology. It is also intended as areference document for subsequent stages of the programmes.At various later stages some students are likely to require additional information on drawingpractices.

 Most of the material in this booklet will not be covered in any set lecture – rather, you areexpected to read it through at an early stage of the course, and then continually refer back to it as you progress through the course.
