Engineering Design and Graphics and is intended as an entry level course for anyone interested in pursuing Engineering.
The purpose of the course is to introduce students to visualizing and representing design ideas pictorially through drafting (ANSI Standards) and graphics. It is a method of communicating design ideas to complement traditional narratives and discussions. One of my statements in all of my Engineering courses is: “the best idea in the world is worthless unless you can convince your audience that it has value.” This convincing begins with a clear and complete design.
An additional purpose of this course is setting the table for Computer Aided Design (CAD) and SolidWorks
This class is open to students in grades 9 – 12
