To teach Geological Engineering students fundamental uses of the AutoCAD software package, basic two dimensional drawing techniques. Advanced topics also cover three dimensional drawings and animations.
Introduction to fundamental software applications for design and construction planning throughout the different phases of the development of engineering projects. Object creation, assemblies of objects, surface modelling, building modelling, geographic and structure information databases.

Learning Outcomes
1) Learns to use autocad in technical drawings.
2) Learns to plot-drawings in cad format.
3) Learns to create various objects in the drawing.
4) Gains the ability of two-and three-dimensional thinking.
