Technical Drawing
Technical Drawing is a visual means of communicating clearly and concisely all the information
(drawings, dimensions, notes, specifications) necessary to transfer an idea or concept into reality.
It is based on the principles of projection in two-dimensional and three-dimensional
representations. Technical Drawing plays an indispensable role in determining the quality and
competitiveness of finished products in the design process. It is, therefore, an important
prerequisite and an essential companion for the CSEC Industrial Technology programmes which
provide the foundational competencies in manufacturing and industrialisation in the Caribbean.

The syllabus focuses on the development of competencies in geometric construction, descriptive

geometry, engineering designs and graphics, electrical, mechanical, manufacturing and
construction drafting. These are geared toward the development of students’ spatial visualisation,
technical communication, interdisciplinary and employability skills. These skills are useful for
careers in drafting, architecture, surveying, civil engineering, interior designing, design
engineering and in the general construction and manufacturing industries. In addition, the
programme of studies in the syllabus caters for those students who will seek entry level
employment in related fields.

The syllabus is divided into four (4) Sections:

SECTION 1 - Fundamentals of Technical Drawing

SECTION 2 - Geometrical Construction

(a) Plane Geometry
(b) Solid Geometry

SECTION 3 - Building Drawing

SECTION 4 - Mechanical Engineering Drawing

Candidates are expected to undertake SECTION 1: Fundamentals of Technical Drawing, SECTION

2: Geometrical Construction and EITHER SECTION 3: Building Drawing OR SECTION 4:
Mechanical Engineering Drawing.
