MODULE DETAILS

Module 1:     Electrical and Electronic Engineering Drawings

Nominal duration: 3 weeks (36 hours total time commitment)

This time commitment includes the preparation reading, attendance at each webinar (1 hour plus 15-30 minutes for discussion), and the time necessary to complete the assignments and further study.

MODULE PURPOSE

This module covers all aspects of engineering drawings in general and electrical/electronic drawings in particular. Various types of electrical drawings and their application, the steps in planning a drawing, selection of drawing size and scale, use of standardized symbols etc. are described in detail with commonly used examples from industry practice. The use of CAD-CAM tools presents its own challenges in the way drawings are stored, shared between different groups of users, and revised for re-use. The module also covers these aspects and takes a look at future possibilities in the way drawings will be used to disseminate information.

ASSESSMENT STRATEGY

To evaluate the achievement of the learning outcomes; written assignments, group projects and practical exercises are set.
