    Can't talk for Glasgow, but a compass, protractor and a couple of set squares should be what they mean. Plus a rule of course.

        It means the larger set squares for technical drawing on A3, plus soft and hard pencils can't remember the numbers and circle stencils or a compass. There's an art shop on Stockwell street across from the college called millers that does a student discount and has all the stuff.

            There's talk that the engineering drawing module is to be scrapped. Nonetheless,
            As I've just passed my drawing module a few weeks ago at glasgow you will need .

            Large set square set
            Set of drawing pencils ( 6h to 6b is recommended)
            Protractor
            Good sharpener and eraser
            A decent rule
            Set of compass
            Set of circles (more useful than a compass at times)
            Drawing clips.

            I got all mine from amazon for fairly cheap.

            As for books, the reeds naval architecture and ship constructurn books are pretty handy. I have pdf copies of a number of textbooks and I can add you to my Dropbox if you wish. They are very useful.
