Introduction to engineering graphics as a means of communication in the technical fields. The course is laboratory oriented and provides the student with basic skills to create and edit professional 2D and 3D drawings with this comprehensive first course in the use of computer aided design and drafting (CADD) software for (mechanical, architectural and civil drawings). The course assumes no prior knowledge of engineering drawing or CADD.

1 Credits
The purpose of this course is to provide students with hands on learning of fundamental and innovative tools in the area of civil engineering graphics. Students will apply information from the co-requisite course to understand how construction drawing sets and drawing components are organized and generated. Spreadsheet methods will be used to solve design problems and building information modeling software will be introduced in the DDL computer lab.
CVET-300
2 Credits
The purpose of this course is to provide the student with an introduction to civil 3D software and how to use the application and its tools to create standardized civil engineering and drafting projects. The course enables students to complete transportation, site, sewer, storm drain, and subdivision projects quickly, while using the tools to dynamically link and generate automatic design updates.

This lab offering provides students with an introduction to MicroStation, which is a computer aided drafting and design course used primarily by federal and state departments of transportation (DOT). Open Roads, is a 3D software that uses MicroStation as an operating platform. Open roads is also commonly used by DOT agencies. MicroStation/Open Roads is analogous to AutoCAD/Civil3D. Students, after completing this course, will be able to successfully utilize the civil geometry tools to create geometry for roadway projects.

3 Credits
The primary objective of the Revit course is to teach students the concepts of Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology and introduce the tools for parametric building design and documentation using Revit Architecture. Students will be able to create full 3D architectural project models and generate working drawings. The course focuses on design development tools - building the 3D model with foundation, walls, windows, doors, floors, roofs, stairs, creating reflected ceiling plans and furniture plans. Students will add views and annotation to the sheets to create a set of construction documents.
