Subject Title
Blueprint Reading

Subject Description
Without a good understanding of how to read engineering drawings, it is impossible to manufacture any of the products we use every day.  Before we can machine a piece of material it is important to have a visual concept of what the finished parts will look like and know its size and specifications.  The main purpose of this course is to develop the student's ability to read, interpret and sketch part drawings.  Emphasis will be placed on the importance of tolerances and specifications as they apply to machining. 
Equivalent to ABP094 in part-time studies.

Full credit status towards a college program.
