Jumpstart your engineering degree at McHenry County College this summer by enrolling in a new, blended Engineering Graphics (EGR 151) course, which takes place online, except for three meeting times for a group project. The course begins June 16 and ends Aug. 8.
Engineering Graphics introduces the language used by engineers, designers and drafters, to communicate technical ideas in the context of engineering design/manufacturing processes in industry. The course covers such topics as technical sketching, measurement/scaling, geometric constructions, multi-view/working drawings, auxiliary projection, pictorials, solid modeling and descriptive geometry.
Students will design, build and test a prototype as a group project. No prerequisites are required and the course is open to anyone, including students in MCC's High School Plus program. Design and drawing will be emphasized throughout the course and students will receive a link to download a free educational edition of AutoCAD.
Students will receive lecture and assignments all online and will work with the instructor to find three mutually agreeable meeting times to complete their group project. Instructor for this course is Anne Lucietto, adjunct engineering instructor. She is currently completing a Ph.D. in engineering at Purdue University, and has worked as a mechanical engineer in a variety of industries while teaching fundamental engineering courses.
