Curriculum & Outcomes

Engineering Graphics Mechanical Design Emphasis

Associate of Applied Science Transfer Degree

103 Credits

Program Mission: The Engineering Graphics Mechanical Design Emphasis AAS-T degree prepares students for careers with mechanical engineering firms (e.g. aeronautics, aerospace, medical, industrial manufacturing, etc.). Technicians are needed to translate the rough sketches, layouts, 3D design models, CAD designs, and written specifications of the engineer or designer into drawings and CAD databases showing the complete details and specifications for the finished product.

Graduates are trained in engineering graphics with a design emphasis to work for companies which manufacture machinery, electrical equipment, computers and fabricated products.

Engineering Graphics Mechanical Design Emphasis AAS-T degree graduates will:

  • Be prepared for a range of entry level positions in the mechanical engineering field with the ability to be independent and self-directed
  • Identify the elements and principles of mechanical design
  • Complete comprehensive design projects
  • Demonstrate industry ready skills and basic drafting fundamentals, concepts and techniques
  • Exhibit analytical thought, informed judgment, and ethical behavior
  • Produce a professional resume, cover letter, and industry ready portfolio
  • Demonstrate critical thinking, teamwork, communication, intercultural appreciation, and technical and information literacy skills
  • Meet Social Science, Humanities, Written Communication, and Quantitative Reasoning distribution area outcomes

Lake Washington Institute of Technology does not offer every course each quarter.  It is the student's responsibility to discuss sequencing and work out their individual schedule with a counselor or adviser. Any developmental coursework a student may be required to complete may increase the program length.

Engineering Graphics Technician

Certificate of Proficiency

73 Credits

The Engineering Graphics Technician certificate is a one-year program designed to prepare a graphics technician to work directly under the supervision of an engineer or designer producing detailed drawings. Engineering Graphics Technicians are specialists in translating the rough sketches, 3D design models, layouts and written specifications of engineers and designers into a drawing showing the complete details and specifications for the finished product under the close direction of a supervisor.

Engineering Graphics Technician certificate graduates will:

  • Be prepared for a range of entry level positions in the mechanical engineering field with limited responsibilities and scope
  • Identify and explain common symbols, materials, scales, and terminology used in the field
  • Demonstrate familiarity with the many tools and techniques associated with design and its application in the work place
  • Exhibit analytical thought, informed judgment, and ethical behavior
  • Produce a professional resume, cover letter, and industry ready portfolio
  • Demonstrate critical thinking, teamwork, communication, intercultural appreciation, and technical and information literacy skills

It is the student's responsibility to discuss sequencing and work out their individual schedule with a counselor or advisor. Any developmental coursework a student may be required to complete may increase the program length.

Tool Design Graphics

Certificate of Completion

36 Credits

The Tool Design Graphics certificate is intended for professionals in fields such as design, engineering, aerospace, automotive and manufacturing. Tool design is the process of designing and developing the tools, methods, and techniques necessary to improve manufacturing efficiency and productivity. A typical part-time student would need two to four terms to finish all course work. A student's individual needs are taken into consideration.

Prerequisites: AAS degree or instructor permission. Students may complete prerequisites concurrently with first course in the program.

It is the student's responsibility to work out his or her individual schedule with a counselor or advisor. Any developmental coursework a student may be required to complete may increase the program length.
