DFT 1200. Basic Drafting. 3 hrs.
This course is designed to be used as an introduction to engineering graphics and will give the student a basic understanding of how to create and read engineering drawings. It covers the main topics of drafting theory including terms common to an engineering drawing, basic drawing and technical sketching, an in-depth study of multi view projection, sectional and auxiliary views, dimensioning (customary and metric system) and multi view projection in the production of a complete set of detail and assembly drawings. The course will also include an introduction to tolerancing and fasterners. Lecture, 2 hours; lab, 2 hours.
DFT 1203. Machine Blueprint Reading. 3 hrs.
Machine blueprint reading is a course designed to progress logically from an introduction to blueprint reading through a study of the fundamental skills and concepts involved in reading, sketching, and interpreting drawings. Lecture, 3 hours.
DFT 1213. Construction Print Reading. 3 hrs.
Construction Print Reading introduces students to print reading through a study of the fundamental skills and concepts involved in sketching, and interpreting drawings. Information is included on construction materials, procedures, specifications, and methods of estimating construction costs. Lecture, 2 hours; lab, 2 hours.
