Rationale
The students of mechanical engineering programme are mainly involved in drafting, manufacturing, inspection and planning activities (such as preparing process plans, preparing bill of materials, etc.) at industries. For all such activities, reference document is the drawing of components/assemblies to be manufactured. In this context, it is of utmost priority to prepare, read and interpret these drawings correctly for production of components and assemblies accurately and precisely. The industrial practices of drafting are also important for the students to make them aware of drafting practices, symbols, codes, norms and standards generally used in industries. Development of sketching ability also strengthens effective engineering communication & presentation.
