Unit Code: TEC602
Unit Title: Technology Education
This unit will introduce the basic knowledge and skills in technical graphics. It will begin with identifying the basic drawing instruments and how these instruments will be used. Before starting with elementary sketches, standard practice of line uses and symbols must be learned. The different technical graphics knowledge and skills will cover the followings: appropriate geometrical constructions, pictorial views and perspectives sketches and further working sketches like 1st, 3rd angle orthographic and Development sketch in sheet metal construction will be learnt. The later part of the unit will contain design process models and different approaches to write design portfolio for student projects. The core teaching approach that students will engage in is “hand-on” learning, where most of the class activities will involve class sketching practices. Thus, the content covers a wide appropriate knowledge and skills development.
