Details for undergraduate courses
  • Level 1 core unit in the Biomedical Engineering; Mechanical Engineering major sequences
Content
Students are introduced to the use of drawings in engineering. Students will engage in practical classes learning freehand sketching and basic engineering drawing. Additional classes will teach Computer Aided Drafting (CAD). Students will also learn about different types of engineering plans and drawings from a range of engineering disciplines, including PNIDs, electrical circuit diagrams, HVAC diagrams, etc. Students will become familiar with the conventions and standards used in different areas, and will be required to interpret different types of drawings.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) use sketching and hand-drawing as a tool for visualisation and communication; (2) prepare 2D and 3D representations of typical engineering objects; (3) explain the purpose of engineering drawing in the design and manufacture process; (4) produce appropriately-dimensioned drawings using the standards and conventions of engineering drawing; (5) interpret a variety of engineering drawings and diagrams from different engineering contexts; and (6) demonstrate proficiency in the use of Computer-aided drawing software.
Assessment
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) sketching portfolio; (2) in-class drawing and CAD exercises; and (3) in-class tests. Further information is available in the unit outline.

  • The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
  • All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
  • Unit readings, including any essential textbooks, are listed in the unit outline for each unit, one week prior the commencement of study. The unit outline will be available via the LMS and the UWA Handbook one week prior the commencement of study. Reading lists and essential textbooks are subject to change each semester. Information on essential textbooks will also be made available on the Essential Textbooks. This website is updated regularly in the lead up to semester so content may change. It is recommended that students purchase essential textbooks for convenience due to the frequency with which they will be required during the unit. A limited number of textbooks will be made available from the Library in print and will also be made available online wherever possible. Essential textbooks can be purchased from the commercial vendors to secure the best deal. The Student Guild can provide assistance on where to purchase books if required. Books can be purchased second hand at the Guild Secondhand bookshop (second floor, Guild Village), which is located on campus.
