CADD2550 Mechanical Design Technical Communications

Course Description

This is a study of the different types of written communications in the technical field including the collection and presentation of technical data. While drawings are the main mode of communication for a drafter, there are several types of written documents they need to create on a weekly or monthly basis. In some of these documents technical drawings need to be created. These technical drawings give a more realistic look to parts and assemblies.
