Computer Aided Design and Communication

Enrolment code: KNE111

Offered:

Hbt: sem 1,

Unit description:

Develops students’ ability in preparing, drawing and presenting engineering drawings
using contemporary graphical techniques and computer software package
s. The concept
of computer aided drafting (CAD) tools is explained. Studies cover mechanical, civil and
electrical circuit drawings. In the drawing of spatial objects, students are introduced to
aspects of descriptive geometry such as methods of projection
, elements of plane and solid
geometry, development of surfaces of revolution. In the drawing of electrical circuits,
students are introduced to computer software techniques for schematic capture and
routing of circuit layouts. The circuit also develops th
e students’ skill in project
presentation.

Hbt: sem 2,

Unit description:

Introduces civil and mechanical students to the engineeri
ng properties of materials and

including Portland cement, concr
ete, timber, ceramics, polymers and composites will also
be covered but the main thrust will be on metal alloys.
