Engineering Graphics – A Language of Engineer

Engineering Graphics, as one the foundation courses to students of all engineering discipline, a 3 Days Interactive Orientation Program titled as “Engineering Graphics – A Language of Engineer” for aspiring engineering students was conducted by Mechanical Engineering Department, under Centre for Continuing Education, Nirma University, Ahmedabad. The objectives of program are to understand the importance and application of engineering graphics, to understand the drawing instruments, to know methodology for preparing the engineering drawing to develop approach for learning the course with few fundamental topics and to develop visualization with the help of audio – visual aids and models.

The program got very good response and was participated by 38 aspiring engineering students. The fundamental topics of Engineering Graphics like Introduction to Engineering Graphics, Drawing Instruments and their use, Projection of Point, Projection of Line, Projection of Plane, Projection of Solid, Orthographic Projection, Sectional Orthographic Projection and Isometric Projection were discussed. The program was coordinated by and all the sessions were conducted by Prof. Anand S. Patel (Assistant Professor, Mechanical Engineering Department). The sessions were conducted with audio – video aids, models and animated solution of problems to understand and to develop visualization & imagination. The reference solution of problems was also shown to participants for better understanding of actual drawings.
