CBSE class 11 Engineering Graphics New Syllabus 2018-19

The subject of ‘Engineering Graphics’ has become an indispensable tool for Engineers,
Technocrats, Architects, Draftsmen, Surveyors, Designers and many other professionals in the recent times. Understanding of its fundamental principles and wider applications of the same in the above fields and many other daily life situations form the basis for the syllabus at Senior Secondary Stage.


The study of the subject of Engineering Graphics at Senior School  Level aims at helping the learner to:
• develop clear concept and perception of form, proportion and application.
• develop the skill of expressing three-dimensional and two-dimensional objects into professional language and vice versa.
• acquire the ability to readily draw neat sketches, often needed in “On-job situations”.
• developaclearunderstandingofplaneandsolidGeometryandmachinedrawingsoastoapply the same in relevant practical fields such as technology and industry.
• acquire speed and accuracy in use of drawing instruments.
• use technology (CAD) in developing isometric and orthographic projections of simple objects.
