The author provides an overview and analysis of methods employed by various types of educational activities, including lectures, practical classes, laboratory assignments and independent studies of students with account for the use of advanced information technologies and given the nature of engineering graphics as a university discipline. Multimedia lecturing is an effective method of generating willingness to master a university discipline. PowerPoint presentations are to be employed in two ways: first, as a modern didactic tool employed to illustrate the lecturing process and, second, as a textbook for self-studies. Practical classes in engineering graphics promote the study of all peculiarities of this discipline. Self-study is considered as an essential link in the process of compulsory education. Department of descriptive geometry and graphics of the Moscow State University of Civil Engineering developed customized electronic packages for all disciplines to provide timely assistance to lecturers and students with a view to successful organization of the learning process. The system of various control actions based on the system of tests has been implemented to improve the efficiency of all types of learning activities. The introduction of information technologies into the learning process improves the efficiency of engineering studies and ensures generation of vital skills.

Peculiarities of teaching computer graphics as part of the course of engineering graphics aimed at the mastering of AutoCAD graphic editor are considered by the authors. The objective of the course is to develop the competencies of future professionals, inlcuding their structural design skills.
The authors recommend incorporation of mini-lectures and computer workshops into the training process. Computer quizzes are to be held at the beginning of each class to consolidate the material, to ensure preparedness for mastering new information and to stimulate the process of learning.
Department of descriptive geometry and engineering graphics developed a special methodology to ensure efficient presentation of theoretical material that incorporates special computer techniques and an original structure and succession of computer slides to improve the information intensity of the computer graphics course that enjoys a small number of lecturing hours allocated within training programmes offered by the University.
Well-balanced tests to be performed by students in the course of their computer workshops facilitate their mastering computer graphics techniques that help them make high-quality error-free working drawings.
