9.      General Goal of program:

·         Ability to identify different components of a simple mechanical device

·         Correctly assemble and disassemble parts of mechanical instruments, make appropriate substitution of machine component when necessary, and assemble a device making use of working diagram.

·         Produce dimensional drawing or sketch manually or by the use of a computer assisted drawing software to allow manufacture of simple machine components.

 

10.  Short Description of the course: Graphic geometry (lines, letters, numbers, joining arcs). Principles of projection (representation of point, straight line, plane). Theory of auxiliary projection and its applications (true shape, true length). Plane Sections of solids (pyramid, prism, cylinder, cone, sphere). Auxiliary views of geometrical bodies, development of solids, orthographic views for given models and pictorials. Pictorial drawings (oblique and isometric), Sectional views from pictorial. Implementation of the theoretical drafting techniques when using computer assisted design software (SolidWorks from the Solidworks Corporation and Structural Research & Analysis Corporation). Manipulation of part, assembly and drawing documents. The use of hand tools, files, hammers, spanners, pliers and wrenches. Different machining processes in metal cutting such as turning, shaping, milling, drilling and grinding are given. Joining of metals by soldering, brazing, welding and adhesives.
