ENAG11009 - Drafting for Engineers

General Information

Unit Synopsis

In this unit, students will learn the fundamentals of engineering drawing. They will produce freehand sketches and CAD drawings using orthographic projection conventions and sectioning conventions complying with Australian Standards. Students will develop skills in 3D solid modelling and rendering as well as produce detail drawings and assembly drawings. They will demonstrate an effective, professional level of communication and support peer group learning.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Written Assessment 0%
2. Written Assessment 30%
3. Written Assessment 30%
4. Written Assessment 40%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).

Unit learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:

  1. Produce freehand sketches to visually define engineering artefacts
  2. Develop and interpret drawings that use orthographic projection conventions and sectioning conventions complying with AS1100 Drawing Standards
  3. Scale, layout, draw and dimension engineering CAD drawings to provide sufficient information to manufacture artefacts
  4. Draw and interpret 2D and 3D drawings using surface modelling, 3D solid modelling and rendering with CAD software
  5. Produce component detail drawings and assembly drawings including parts lists for engineering artefacts to AS1100 standards
  6. Demonstrate an effective, professional level of communication and support collaborative peer group learning
