This course covers the fundamentals of engineering drafting. Students will gain experience in completing drawings typical in the fields of civil, mechanical, structural and electrical engineering using both mechanical drawing and CAD techniques. Students will be introduced to the basic design procedures required in the engineering professions. These procedures include drainage calculations (estimates of cut and fill); heating and cooling calculations (Florida energy code calculations); bending, shear and deflection of beams; bending and compression in columns; foundation design; electrical load calculations; pipe sizing; and plumbing riser diagrams.
