An Engineering Education Australia Virtual Workshop:
Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) is an essential tool for communicating your design intent. It describes the desired form, fit, function, and interchangeability of the parts from technical drawings.

As a common language, GD&T can help facilitate communication among key team members responsible for the production of a part.

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers' (ASME) Y14.5 Dimensioning and Tolerancing standard is considered international best practice for the design language of GD&T. 

In this four-day course, facilitated by an international expert from the USA, you'll gain the skills you need to interpret engineering designs based on the latest standard, ASME Y14.5-2018. 

By the end of this course you’ll have the skills and applied knowledge needed to avoid costly manufacturing mistakes, provide better quality control, and shorten delivery time.

Who should attend

This course is relevant for anyone who needs to read and/or interpret engineering drawings and their intent including:

  • designers
  • engineers
  • managers
  • decision makers
  • manufacturers
  • drafters
  • CAD inspectors, and
  • production, procurement and quality control personnel

About the speaker

Patrick J. McCuistion, PhD, GDTPS has provided instruction in geometric dimensioning, dimensional analysis, gage and fixture design, and dimensional metrology to industry, military, and educational institutions since 1986.

Dr. McCuistion was an Associate Professor in the Engineering Technology and Management Department at Ohio University for 25 years. He taught Engineering Graphics, Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing, Dimensional Analysis, and Quality Management Systems. Prior to that, he taught three years at Texas A&M University and one year at Pittsburg State University.

This online course is run exclusively by The American Society of Mechanical Engineers with Engineering Education Australia.
