8. Aims of the Course

  • It is noticeable that facilities, buildings and construction projects have developed significantly in recent years, and accordingly, the methods of presenting ideas and engineering plans have evolved, and a great deal has been relied on modern technologies such as computers and engineering programs in the presentation of engineering plans. Therefore, this course aims to introduce the student to the methods and tools of paper engineering drawing, how to read diagrams, and ways to find dimensions or shapes that are not shown in the diagram through some of the engineering processes and ideas of engineering drawing. This course is also an important introduction to computer applications of engineering drawing, as the civil engineering specialist will not be able to make the most of the computer unless he is fully familiar with the subject of engineering drawing.

8. Aims of the Course

  • All phenomena in the natural world are measured in terms of a few basic relationships between measurable properties of matter and energy. These relationships are called laws of physics, and they are formulas that are characterized by a high degree of generality and are derived from a large number of phenomena. The goal of physics can be summarized as expressing these basic relationships (these laws) in a mathematical form, so that the student can use the logical rules of mathematics to apply the laws to specific cases and thus obtain quantitative results. The most important laws of physics are in the field of civil engineering, which requires the engineer to know these laws for the purpose of reflecting them on the engineering reality related to mathematics, engineering foundations, fluid movement, hydraulic installations, and others.
