Catalog Description
This course basically deals with the understanding of a variety of technical engineering drawings as well as the
introduction of using the AutoCAD and BIM tools (Revit). The course focuses on not only the improvement of
freehand sketching skill for engineering drawings but also the graphical interpretation of orthographic
including pictorial views, section views, dimensioning, translation of design instructions in detail, assembly
drawings, construction drawings and so on. And this will place an emphasis on practical learning with regard to
understand engineering drawings for students.
