Geomotric Dimensioning and Tolerancing

This course is a study of the geometric controls set forth in ASME standard Y14.5-1994-Dimensioning and Tolerancing.
Course Objectives: Upon completion of the course the student will demonstrate a beginners level ability to interpret a symbolic language used on engineering drawings to communicate geometric information.
