This program provides courses in the drafting CAD and technical subject areas as well as the required general education courses to prepare students to transfer to a university. Students should work closely with an Academic Advisor regarding the requirements at a specific four-year institution.
Graduates will demonstrate (1) knowledge and ability in the use of computer assisted drafting (CAD) technology which will prepare them to obtain an entry-level position in the field and (2) critical thinking skills in AWC's General Education focus areas.
- Demonstrate technical skills to communicate CAD drafting concepts using drawing and editing commands, basic object commands, and layers and drawing construction tools.
- Use external references and create multi view layouts.
- Demonstrate ability to solve modeling problems with the assistance of Revit in design, and graphic systems.
- Demonstrate ability to solve advanced modeling problems with the assistance of Revit in design, and graphic systems as prescribed by the instructor.
- Discuss the equipment, theory, drafting techniques and related industrial standards associated with industrial drawings.
- Demonstrate ability to produce basic residential working drawings.
- Draw lines, basic shapes, and geometric constructions, and edit drawings.
- Construct blocks with attributes and use them in a drawing.
- Prepare of profiles and cross sections.
- Use one or more selected design discipline overlays and libraries for CAD-BIM drawing and development.
- Use one or more selected design discipline overlays and libraries for CAD-BIM drawing and development. Perform basic rendering techniques to 3D models.
- Demonstrate use of Revit program functions and techniques in the production of drawings as they relate to mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems and installations.
- Demonstrate through the an assigned project task ability to solve structural modeling problems related to building systems and installations with the assistance of Revit in design, and graphic representations as prescribed by the instructor.
- Apply American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards and geometric tolerance to manufacturing drawings.
- Discuss microform systems and techniques.
