Graphics has always been the language of Engineering and preferred media for conveyance of design ideas. This unique program was designed to provide teaching methodology of Engineering Graphics from the first principles along with introduction to geometrical dimensioning and tolerance in design. Further the workshop aims to impart basic concepts and fundamental principles of Orthographic projections as well as the topics of development of surface, isometric projections and perspective projections using computer software. The workshop is designed to provide hands on training on selected topics.
This Five Days Workshop on “Engineering Graphics and Design-Teaching Methodology and Evaluation Procedure” was inaugurated by Sri R Manmohan, Former Deputy General Manager, Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, Bengaluru, who was the Chief Guest on this occasion.
