The rationale for this course is to motivate students by fostering creativity and introducing conceptual design, sustainable design in engineering, industrial design, computer aided design and drafting early in the course. Early training and practice in the engineering design method, the introduction to engineering handbooks and commercial catalogues is necessary for a foundation to which students can relate future studies in the more advanced courses of the program. Engineers need skills in graphical communication and spatial vision in the practice of their profession.
