College of Aeronautics (WAERO)
Graphical Communications
Free-hand pencil sketching and CAD as tools for graphical communication of engineering designs. Standard forms for design graphics and view layout, orthographic projection, section and auxiliary views, dimensioning, tolerancing, introduction to shop processes.

This course is designed to familiarize the student with the basic principles of drafting, engineering drawing, and the fundamentals of a computer aided design program. It is also designed to improve the student’s three dimensional visualization skills.

1. Understand the character and application of the various lines used in engineering drawings.2. Relate scaled drawings to actual size.3. Construct freehand sketches that emphasize the importance of proportions.4. Use orthographic projections in the construction of multi-view drawings.5. Construct isometric projections, auxiliary views, and section views.6. Understand the techniques and rules of dimensioning and tolerancing in the production of drawings.7. Understand basic blueprints and different machining techniques.8. Use computer aided drafting tools to produce multi-view, isometric, auxiliary, and section views.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
