engineering drawing in mechanical engineering

Today, we are going to discuss about the one of the core and very important subject of mechanical engineering.

Engineering drawing is the subject which is also called the language of engineers.

It is a universal language through which one engineer can communicate to another engineer without any great hard work, even with the language or geographical barriers.


Every industry needs engineers qualified in the drawing of engineering. Engineering drawing is the analytical way to represent everything that exists in this world.

This is one of the essential skills that a mechanical engineer should really have.

If you would like to know the purpose and concept behind teaching this topic in universities, this blog will surely help.

This course has the aim of:

  1. To increase awareness and emphasize the need for Engineering Graphics in all the engineering divisions.
  2. To follow the basic principles and conventions of drawing.
  3. Developing competencies in three-dimensional visualization of engineering components.
  4. The preparation of sectional views of solids.
  5. To figure out surface production and estimate the need for sheet metal.
  6. To develop skills for the representation of engineering components in three dimensions.
  7. To provide students with the basic knowledge and skills in producingEngineering Graphics and with the capability to read and interpretengineering drawings.
  8. To develop an understanding of solid modeling using soft wares.

Faculty may have certain requirements from students after completion of this course which a student must meet.

Some expected outcomes of the course are following:-

The students should be in a position to

  1. Prepare drawings as per standards (BIS).
  2. Solve specific geometrical problems in plane geometry involving lines,plane figures and special Curves.
  3. Produce orthographic projection of engineering components workingfrom pictorial drawings.
  4. Prepare sectional views of solids.
  5. Estimate the sheet metal requirement for fabrication.
  6. Draw isometric drawings of combined solids and simple components.
  7. Prepare solid modeling of machine components using software.

I hope this blog provided you some clarification on the engineering drawing and therefore will help you deeper understand the significance of Engineering Drawing.

Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me
asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it?

I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme
slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care
of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

Hello! This is my first visit to your blog! We are
a collection of volunteers and starting a new initiative in a community
in the same niche. Your blog provided us valuable information to work on. You have done a marvellous job!

Amazing! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a completely different topic
but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Great choice of colors!

Excellent goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you’re
just extremely wonderful. I really like what you’ve acquired here, certainly like what
you are stating and the way in which you say it. You make
it entertaining and you still take care of to keep it wise.

I can’t wait to read much more from you. This is really a tremendous website.
