ENGINEERING DESIGN AND CAD 1

Drafting Technology

A one-year course for students with little or no drafting background. This course is the recommended prerequisite for all other drafting classes. Basic skills are covered in this class. Basic units to be covered include: the graphic language, freehand sketching, lettering, use of equipment, geometry of technical drawing, single plane drawing, orthographic drawing, pictorial presentations, sectional views, auxiliary drawings, basic mathematics, and Computer Aided Drafting (CAD). CAD instruction includes the Cartesian Coordinate System through two-dimensional problems using AutoCAD software. This course qualifies under the 2+2 Partnership Program as (DFT 12) which means students can earn 3 units of transferable college credit with a passing grade of “B”.

ENGINEERING DESIGN & CAD 2

Drafting Technology

 

Prerequisite: Engineering Design and CAD 1

A one-year course for students who wish to continue Engineering and Design applications. Students will study 3D Design Principles using various Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) systems. Units of study include Cartesian coordinates, universal coordinate system, planes/surfaces, wire-frames, surface models and solid models. The program will utilize a Problem-Based Learning (PBL) approach, which gives students practice in skills that will be required of them in the workplace. All work will be assembled into a student portfolio.

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN & CAD 1 - P

Drafting Technology

This course introduces students to architectural design principles as they are used to develop interior and exterior living areas. Units of work include: Basic elements of Architectural Design, introduction to Uniform Building Code standards, introduction to elements of fine arts as they pertain to Architectural Design, individual room and space planning, and the completion of a student portfolio which contains a completed set of working drawings for a two bedroom, one bath house. Plans will be completed using AutoCAD software. Sketchings, floor plans, electrical plans, foundation plans, elevations, cross sections, details and site plans will be completed in this class. Architectural Design and CAD 1 is articulated with Butte College to earn high school and Butte College credits, which are also transferable to the CSU system.

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN & CAD 2

Drafting Technology

 

Prerequisite: Architectural Design & CAD 1

 

 

Architectural Design and CAD 2 is a one-year course for students who have successfully completed Architectural Design and CAD 1. Students must demonstrate a basic mastery of architectural fundamentals, design principles and computer drafting skills. Students will use these skills to complete three-dimensional and color presentation projects. Design criteria will be provided by the instructor. Students will interpret the criteria and produce individually designed solutions. All projects must adhere to architectural design requirements and utilize the basic principles of artistic design. Finished work will be presented in portfolio form

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN & CAD 3

Drafting Technology

 

Prerequisite: Architectural Design & CAD 2 or permission of instructor

 

 

Architectural Design and CAD 3 is a one-year course for students who have successfully completed Architectural Design and CAD 1 & 2. Students must demonstrate a mastery of architectural fundamentals, design principles and computer drafting skills. Students will develop individual abstract residential projects. The nature of the project will be a vacation residence. It must be non-traditional in nature and in structure. Students must research several resources to develop their ideas. Three major components will be used to present student projects. The first will be a project board that will be a combination of manual and graphic developments. The second will be digital models developed on the computer. The third will be an actual quarter scale model using a variety of manual, computer drafting, computer milling and laser techniques. All three components of the vacation projects will be used to make an oral presentation.
