Drawing is the universal language of engineering. Drawings from an engineer provide a raw account of the fundamentals that will eventually go into making something useful and necessary.

Engineering drawings are a formal and precise way of communicating information about the shape, size, features and precision of physical objects. The drawings of the engineer are an obvious case of making visible the practical expression of the profession, the interpretation of which has a direct impact on the final product.

This 4-hr course begins with a thorough explanation of how engineering drawings are structured and the conventions that are used in making them and reading them. The course is designed to demonstrate how to read mechanical and technical drawings of piping and mechanical devices, controllers, and instruments connected to the network of pipes in an industrial plant, as well as electrical drawings.

This course will be useful for anyone who creates or interprets engineering drawings: product manufacturing and quality engineers, mechanical, civil and electrical engineers; inspectors; machinists; production personnel; construction workers, purchasing agents; etc. This course is particularly beneficial to engineers who wish to understand the function and symbology of drawings created by their project counterparts in other disciplines, such as mechanical engineers who desire to understand electrical schematics and wiring diagrams.
