Corequisite (Course required to be taken concurrently): None
Prerequisite: (Completion of, or concurrent enrollment in): DT 101
Recommended Preparation: None
Limitation on Enrollment (e.g. Performance tryout or audition): None

Catalog Description

Fundamentals of drafting including lettering, sketching, geometric constructions, orthographic projections, basic dimensioning, sectional views and auxiliary views. Drafting will be performed on the computer using AutoCAD, SolidWORKS, and Creo software.

Student Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the course, the student will be able to:
  1. 70% of the students will be able to understand 2D plane geometry and apply it to the design and lay out of drawings using AutoCAD
  2. At the completion of this course at least 70% of the students will be able to use basic drafting techniques using the latest software.

Specific Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of the course, the student will be able to:
  1. Identify and apply correct techniques in lettering and lines;
  2. Apply plane geometry in current drafting use and demonstrate plane geometry constructions;
  3. Identify and demonstrate graphic drawing symbols, formats and media commonly used in technical drawings;
  4. Develop detailed drawings of a variety of technical parts using Third angle multi-view orthographic projection, Auxiliary Views and Sectional views;
  5. Apply correct dimensioning and tolerancing techniques to a variety of technical drawings.
