• Drafting 1

    Do you like to draw? Do you want to design your own home? This course will teach you the first steps of design. You will learn to use AutoCAD to draw your ideas so others can build, construct, or manufacture to your specifications. This course introduces students to the use of simple and complex graphic tools used to communicate and understand ideas and concepts found in the areas of architecture, manufacturing, engineering, science and mathematics. Topics include business meeting skills and goal setting strategies, classical representation methods such as sketching, geometric construction techniques, CAD, orthographic projection, and dimensioning. Skills in communication, mathematics, science, leadership, teamwork, and problem solving are reinforced in this course. Job shadowing is an appropriate work-based learning strategy for this course. Hands-on work experience provide many opportunities to enhance classroom instruction and career development.
