A Freshman Engineering Design Graphics Collaboratory
AbstractThis paper briefly reviews the author’s experiences over the past four decades in transforming the Engineering Design Graphics (EDG) curriculum. During this time, the field has seen a remarkable evolution from manual drafting to 3-D computer modeling with its many applications to engineering design and analysis. The paper will further discuss the current status of the EDG curriculum at the author’s homeinstitution. The current concept is an EDG collaboratory space, in which teamwork and a design project are the overarching theme in which graphics and 3-D modeling fundamentals are taught.
