Committee Members - James DeSantis, Susan Thompson. AutoCAD 2 is an introductory course of study that stresses the application of the design process as it relates to Pre-Civil Engineering, Pre-Mechanical Engineering and Pre-Architecture. The course will be delivered through the use of AutoDesk Design Software (an industry leader in design software). AutoCAD 2 is structured as a half-year, ½ credit course designed to be taught in a computer laboratory-based learning environment. Student will be involved primarily with “hands-on/minds-on” learning experience activities, comprising approximately 90% of the course curriculum delivery. The remaining curriculum will be delivered through traditional methods including selected textbook readings, teacher guided lectures and discussions, worksheets, student-generated technology reports, video-based and computer-based presentations.Upon completion of this course, students should be knowledgeable concerning the operation of Computer Aided Design Software including AutoCAD, Inventor, Architecture, Civil 3D and Rapid Viz. They will understand how the software is used in industry and why. Students will be able to produce presentations including drawings, which will meet industry standards.
