Information Technology / Manufacturing

Computer Aided Design

The  objective  of  this  course  is  to  introduce  students  to  engineering  graphics  as  a  means  of communication in the technical fields of architecture, engineering and construction (A/E/C).  The course is laboratory oriented and provides the student with basic skills to create professional 2D drawings with this comprehensive first course in the use of AutoCAD software for mechanical, architectural and civil drawings.  

Manufacturing Technology

Students develop engineering skills in engineering graphics and solid modeling. Students will use computer-aided drafting (CAD) as a tool to generate 2D graphics and 3D solid models. The course is laboratory oriented and provides the student with basic skills in spatial visualization, freehand sketching, parametric solid modeling, and creation of engineering drawings which meet industrial drafting standards.

3D Printing

A unit which will expose students to 3D printing or additive manufacturing which is a process of making a three-dimensional object of almost any shape from a 3D model.

Engineering Graphics – Computer Aided Drafting – AutoCAD

Students will be introduced to engineering graphics as a means of communication in the fields of architecture, engineering and construction.  The course is laboratory oriented and will provide the student with basic skills to create professional 2D drawings with this comprehensive first course in the use of AutoCAD software. The course assumes no prior knowledge of engineering drawing or CAD.
