The student will be able to:
A. visualize three-dimensional objects in space, and present these objects on a drawing by orthographic and pictorial methods of projection.
B. execute a simple set of working drawings as used in industry and construction; the student will have, in some degree, an appreciation of the engineering design considerations involved in the production parts represented in his drawings.
C. use current dimensioning techniques as represented in such publications as ANSI.
D. develop professional standards for the near and orderly presentation of graphic information.
E. use computer to construct working drawings and drawings that are related to descriptive geometry, as well as introduction level of 3-D molding.

Types and/or Examples of Required Reading, Writing, and Outside of Class Assignments
A. Homework problems: Homework problems covering subject matter from text and related material. Students will need to employ critical thinking in order to complete assignments.
B. Hands-on: Students will have hands-on activities in class and discuss their assignment and check their understanding of lecture material. Reading and understanding handout manual prior to class is critical to their success.
C. Projects: Students design and build their project. At end of the quarter, students will present their projects in both the form of a written report and oral presentation.
