Course Outcomes
Upon completion of this course the student should be able to:

  • demonstrate knowledge of basic and advanced;
  • 2D CAD commands/terminology, their functions and how they are applied in different applications;
  • understand and create 2D CAD drawings;
  • demonstrate knowledge of basic 3D CAD commands/terminology, their functions and how they are applied in different applications;
  • develop a system of using CAD for more rapid and practical methods of drawing, storing and retrieving information;
  • identify architectural graphic symbols, lines, cross-referencing, and proper applications; and
  • demonstrate the use of technology to solve problems, achieve a goal, or perform a specific function.
