The study of Technical Graphics provides an opportunity to appreciate the demands of design - both theoretical and practical - for technical innovation and progress

It is particularly relevant to a number of educational and vocational fields including engineering, industrial and product design, built environment design (architecture, landscape design and interior design), urban planning, surveying and spatial sciences and building paraprofessionals. These contexts require graphical problem solving, interpretation, communication and the shaping of practical solutions to existing and emerging technological challenges. Learners gain knowledge and skills in solving design problems though technical drawing using conventional and CADD systems. Learners use a design process in the major project to address a design brief which will provide rich insights into the industry standards for one of the numerous contexts in which technical graphics are vital for design, manufacturing and production.
