The Applications of Computer Graphics in Industry and Implications for Drafting Curriculum on the College Level.
Case, Merl Edward
To ascertain the status of computer graphics in selected companies and industrial education departments and to derive guidelines for computer graphics curriculum planning, data were obtained through a questionnaire sent to 129 industrial educators and another sent to 32 industrial personnel. Findings were that: (1) 10 of the educators indicated their school offered courses in computer graphics, (2) Computer graphics was not a required course for industrial arts majors, (3) All schools offering the course also offered 19 or more semester hours of drafting, and (4) 20 of 35 plotters used by industry were of the flatbed type. Specific conclusions were that: (1) Industrial arts departments are offering computer graphics on a limited basis, (2) Insufficient funds and a lack of facilities are primary reasons for not offering the course, (3) The primary application of computer graphics in industry is to depict engineering drawings, and (4) The industries using this process can be expected to develop their own programing systems.
