notes For RGPV Bhopal AICTE Students

Engineering Graphics (BT-105) RGPV notes AICTE flexible curricula

Course Objective

All phases of manufacturing or construction require the conversion of new ideas and design concepts into the basic line language of graphics. Therefore, there are many areas (civil, mechanical, electrical, architectural and industrial) in which the skills of the CAD technicians play major roles in the design and development of new products or construction. Students prepare for actual work situations through practical training in a new state-of-the-art computer designed CAD laboratory using engineering software. This course is designed to address:
• to prepare you to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
• to prepare you to communicate effectively
• to prepare you to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
