Engineering Graphics Series: Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing

This badge will introduce students to geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T). Orthographic multiview projections incorporating GD&T notation will be analyzed geometrically. Implications of GD&T notation in terms of tolerance zones and fit between parts will be discussed. Offered for credit (0.5 credits). 

Course Objectives

By the end of the badge students should be able to:

  • Identify GD&T notation.
  • Interpret dimensions and tolerances in engineering drawings that make use of GD&T notation.

Credit Hours
Success in this 0.5 credit hour course is based on the expectation that students will spend, for each unit of credit, a minimum of 7.5 hours over the length of the course in direct instruction as provided by the instructor and an additional 15 hours outside of class reading, reflecting, and evaluating the topics for a total of 22.5 hours.

Grading Scale: Badge/No Badge

Evaluation: 100% completion of badge criteria


Wilfredo Moscoso-Kingsley, PhD

Dr. Wilfredo Moscoso-Kingsley is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering at Wichita State University. He holds several degrees from Purdue University, including MSIE, 2003, MSE, 2008 and PhD, 2008. His experience is in machine tool design and experimental mechanics. More specifically, he has contributed to the development of constrained machining as a severe plastic deformation method to refine grains in metal alloys and to produce non-basal textures in hexagonal closed-packed metals. He was also part of a team that developed special tool holders to retrofit existing machine tools. These tools enabled metal machining under the application of controlled vibrations that improved chip removal and lubricant penetration into the chip-tool contact zone. More recently, his work has focused on the determination of the temperature distribution at the chip-tool interface in the machining of titanium and nickel super alloys. Dr. Moscoso-Kingsley has coauthored numerous patents and scientific articles. He was co-recipient of the 2010 R&D 100 award, and of the Indiana State Winner-Clean Energy Challenge 2012 award. He also was a LASPAU-Fulbright scholar.
