Industrial Technology Division

DRFT-04A FUNDAMENTALS OF COMPUTER-AIDED DRAFTING (AutoCAD)
3 units: 2 hours lecture, 3 hours lab.
Advisories: ENGL-81, ENGL-84; MATH-80 or MATH-83.
This course uses the current release of AutoCAD. The student will progress through the fundamental and some intermediate commands. Included will be the drawing setup, drawing, editing, drawing text, and dimension practices. The student will also construct multi-view drawings as used in industry. All drawing plates will be plotted in either model space or paper space. (1/02)

DRFT-04B INTERMEDIATE COMPUTER-AIDED DRAFTING (AutoCAD)
3 units: 2 hours lecture, 3 hours lab.
Prerequisite: DRFT-04A.
Advisories: ENGL-81, ENGL-84; MATH-80 or MATH-83.
This course uses AutoCAD's most current release. The student will progress through the intermediate commands. Included will be the Mview setup, isometric drawing, editing, and advanced dimension practices. The student will also construct multi-view drawings in paper space with different scales as used in industry. All drawing plates will be plotted in paper space. (1/02)

DRFT-04C SOLID MODELING AND RENDERING (AutoCAD)
3 units: 2 hours lecture, 3 hours lab.
Prerequisite: DRFT-04B. Advisories: ENGL-81, ENGL-84.
This course uses the latest AutoDesk solid modeling software. Students will create, modify, and render solid objects. 3-D primitive and 3-D regions are generated and manipulated with the program commands and options to produce 3-D solids with mass properties. (1/02)

DRFT-05 COMPUTER GRAPHICS (Also: ENGR-05)
3 units: 2 hours lecture, 3 hours lab.
Prerequisite: DRFT-04A.
Advisories: ENGL-81, ENGL-84; MATH-80 or MATH-83.
This course utilizes computer graphics to prepare engineering drawings including geometric constructions, multi-view drawing, sectioning, auxiliary views, pictorial drawing, and developments. (1/02) DRFT-25 GRAPHICS (Also: ENGR-25) (CAN ENGR 2)
3 units: 2 hours lecture, 3 hours lab.
Prerequisite: DRFT-04A. Advisory: MATH-04A.
This course involves the use of computer-aided drafting and hand sketching to solve problems and communicate ideas. The course is also an introduction to descriptive geometry using computers and more traditional methods of problem solving through the auxiliary view and two-view methods. The development of graphical methods in their application to graphs, charts, and spatial and vector geometry will be studied. (1/02)

DRFT-42A ARCHITECTURAL DRAFTING - AutoCAD
3 units: 2 hours lecture, 3 hours lab.
Prerequisite: DRFT-04A.
This course covers the drafting techniques used in the preparation of working drawings for building construction, with special emphasis on house planning, house construction, and building codes and regulations. The course includes the drawing of a short set of house plans, floor plan, plot plan, elevation, and a perspective. (12/02)

DRFT-42B ARCHITECTURAL DRAFTING -- SOLID BUILDER
3 units: 2 hours lecture, 3 hours lab.
Advisory: DRFT-42A.
This course covers the techniques used in the making of working drawings for building construction. The program used creates a 3-D drawing of a house. A detailed cutting list and bill of materials is also generated relative to the drawings. There will be special emphasis on a complete set of house plans adequate for bidding purposes. Also included will be sections, details, interior elevations, foundation plan, heating and air conditioning, specification, and a model. Previous computer aided experience is not a requisite. AutoCAD commands are not used. (1/02)

DRFT-44 PRINT READING AND SKETCHING
3 units: 2 hours lecture, 3 hours lab.
Advisories: ENGL-81, ENGL-84; MATH-80 or MATH-83.
This course is for technical students and other personnel who must be skilled in reading industrial prints. The student will become familiar with industrial prints, industry standards, and current practices. There will be a basic coverage of sketching as it applies to the communication skills of reading prints. (1/02)

DRFT-48A SPECIAL PROBLEMS - ARCHITECTURAL DRAFTING
2 units: 6 hours lab.
Prerequisite: DRFT-42B.
This course is designed to allow the student to gain experience in those areas not covered in the objectives of DRFT-42B. The course will help prepare the student for employment in the architectural trade with necessary computer-aided drafting skills. Techniques and information needed for employment in the trade occupations will receive special emphasis. (1/02)

DRFT-48B SPECIAL PROBLEMS IN CAD - SOFTWARE MODIFICATION
2 units: 6 hours lab.
Prerequistes: DRFT-04C, DRFT-05/ENGR-05.
This course is designed to permit the student to experience those topics not covered in the objectives of DRFT-04ABC and DRFT-05/ENGR-05. The course will help prepare the student for employment in the trade with AutoCAD entry-level skills. Techniques and information needed for employment in the trade occupations will receive special attention. (1/02)

DRFT-48C SPECIAL PROBLEMS IN CAD - TODAY'S TECHNOLOGY
2 units: 6 hours lab.
Prerequisites: DRFT-04C, DRFT-05/ENGR-05.
This course is designed to permit the student to experience those areas not normally covered in the objectives of DRFT-04ABC and
DRFT-05/ENGR-05. The course will help prepare the student for employment in the trade with entry-level skills. Techniques and information needed for employment in the trade occupations will receive special attention. (1/02)

DRFT-59 BASIC DRAFTING
3 units: 2 hours lecture, 3 hours lab.
Advisories: ENGL-81, ENGL-84; MATH-80 or MATH-83.
This course covers principles of mechanical drawing and drafting. It is designed to help students communicate through sketching and drawing. The communication is covered as a presentation of ideas through drawings. (1/02)
