# ATDD 1910 - Fundamentals of Descriptive Geometry

Credit Hours: 2.00

Prerequisites: None

(formerly ATDD 2911)

This course uses practical application to solve engineering problems through the projection of three-dimensional figures onto a two-dimensional plane surface. Students will utilize orthographic techniques to yield solutions such as the true length of a line, end/point view of a line, true shape of a plane, and edge view of a plane.
