Engineering drawing is one of the oldest technologies used in mechanical engineering and therefore also one of the oldest subjects of engineering study courses. Since the last century, engineering drawing has moved on from a subjective way of drawing to a very formalized common language among engineers. In addition, the drawing technology has changed from paper based 2D drawing to 3D volume modelling with help of computer aided drawing (CAD) systems. The 2D drawing is now only one point of view onto the product describing information. Parallel to the drawing technologies, also the teaching technologies have developed over the last decades. Especially during the last decade, the Institute of Mechanical Engineering introduced different teaching methods into it’s engineering drawing course. This paper analyses the consequences of those changes for the learning success of the students over the last 8 years.

Keywords: Engineering drawing, e-learning, CAD, videos, multimedia
