Welcome to Engineering Tools! Congratulations on your accceptance into the University of Technology and your decision to venture into the field of engineering. Let's begin!
The module exposes the student to engineering fundamentals and applications. It is intended to give entering students a view of what engineers do professionally. The module is designed with a theoretical and practical component. The theory includes: background and history of engineering, engineering team, engineering ethics, engineering analysis and design, technical communication and engineering calculations. The practical component includes electrical and mechanical workshop and engineering graphics and is geared towards preparing students for safe and effective engineering practices. The final practical component will introduce computer drafting packages such as AUTOCAD to demonstrate to the students how drafting software can be utilized in engineering design. The student will be exposed to various standards for engineering drawings.
