Rationale
The students of mechanical engineering programme are mainly involved in drafting, manufacturing, inspection and planning activities (such as preparing process plans, preparing bill of materials, etc.) in industries. For all such activities, reference document is the drawing of component/assembly to be manufactured. In this context, it is of utmost importance to prepare, read and interpret these drawings correctly for production of components and assemblies accurately and precisely. The industrial practices of drafting are also important for the students to make them aware of drafting practices, symbols, codes, norms and standards generally used in industries.
Development of sketching ability also strengthens effective engineering communication & presentation. Now a days the market driven economy demands frequent changes in product design to suit the customer needs. With the introduction of computers the task of incorporating frequent changes as per requirement is becoming simpler. This course has been introduced at Diploma level in order to develop the skills in student so that they can generate various digital production drawings as required in industry using various CAD software.
