Course Descriptions


CAD101 - Computer Assisted Design I Credits: 3
This course is designed to provide an overview of computer assisted drafting (CAD) and design (CADD). Topics covered in the course will include the benefits of adopting and implementing CAD/D. System hardware and software specifications and options will be covered. Generic and system specific instruction will be provided and students will learn how to operate system components leading to the setting-up, creating, revising and plotting of drawings on a CAD system.

CAD102 - Computer Assisted Design II Credits: 3
This course is designed to expand upon the activities and functions covered in Computer Assisted Design I. Emphasis will be placed on mastery of concepts and skills, as well as on productivity and introduction of advanced software functions. Topics of coverage will include composition of drawings via system specific menu option utilization, use of advanced computer assisted drafting/design functions, and the application of special library symbols for the creation of two dimensional (2D), and basic three dimensional (3D) images.
Prerequisite: CAD 101.
