AE 1301 - Architectural Engineering Graphics

1 lecture hours 2 lab hours 1 credits
Course Description
This second course in the graphics sequence for Civil and Architectural Engineering, and Construction Management students covers basic graphic and communication skills needed by architectural engineers. Topics covered include lettering and line weights, views of structures in plan, in elevation, in section, in isometric and in perspective. Also, as part of this course the student is exposed to basic building systems. Graphics are produced using drafting, freehand and CAD. (prereq: AE 1312 )
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
• Demonstrate the ability to graphically communicate architectural engineering information by freehand
• Demonstrate competence in hand/mechanical drafting techniques, with proper line weights, attention to detail, and architectural lettering and dimensioning
• Prepare proper building plans, elevations, sections, isometric, axonometrics and perspectives drawings as they relate to architectural engineering projects
• Create basic CAD drawings with proper line weights, dimensioning techniques, and architectural symbols
