    Engineering Drafting, Intermediate
    Prerequisite: Drafting, Beginning

    Course number: T401421
    Course Length: Quarter/Semester
    Course Description:
    Intermediate Drafting continues the fundamentals learned in Beginning Drafting. Intermediate Drafting allows students to refine the design, drawing, and CAD skills they learned in Beginning Drafting. Particular emphasis will be placed on mechanical design projects. Students will develop an appreciation of how machines are constructed, through the use of AutoCAD, MasterCAM, and CNC milling. Students will also begin to use 3D solid modeling software and create drawings that simulate mechanical movement. Students who desire to develop and design a complex project of his or her choosing may continue this course in Advanced Engineering Drafting.
