All the information required for the production of a detailed picture to be transferred as part of the engineering is called technical drawing. Technical drawing can be drawn within the framework of its own rules has a readable feature. Drawings can be drawn by hand, drawing equipment (pens, compasses, rulers) or the computer with the aid-funded programs. The result of industrialization in the 19th century has increased the importance of the technical drawing. Complex projects with a combination of each piece was made clear by using drawing installation images. Today, the technical picture has become an indispensable communication tool for engineering. Failed, broken or technical drawings for the explanation and description of the parts to be manufactured has become a new form of language depends on the basic standards anywhere in the world. Developments were reflected in the maritime sector. Drawing applications used in the manufacture of ships, also gained importance in the balance and construction account. Covering recent years has been facilitated by computer-aided ship design software projects that replace paper disk less space, has virtual drawings stored in CDs or external hard drives. In this study, Marine engineering drawings and computer-aided design of the importance of maritime education, are being investigated as active as long as how to switch from the traditional process of innovation. Advantages and disadvantages of innovative and traditional understanding of technical drawings were compared. Technical drawing education in Turkey and the world are examined in terms of marine engineering. The promotion of maritime drawing education as a result, the incomplete elimination, supported with computer software, which provides great opportunities for the supply part during fault in the ship along with improving the education provided in schools, therefore, has been found to reduce costs.
