This course is for students who think outside the box. Students learn to create the technical drawings and plans used to build/manufacture everything. Products range from electronics, machinery, and roads to structures such as houses, office buildings, and bridges. The drawings are very specific and show measurements, sizes, materials, and instructions. Students learn the basics of pencil and board drafting and then put their creativity and imagination using computer-aided drafting (CAD), solid modeling and 3-D printing. Attention to detail, visualization and creative problem-solving are all useful for stimulating work on such projects as machine parts, houses and maps. Graduates go on to become drafters, CAD operators, designers, engineers and architects.
