NCAD-220
3 Credits
The objective of this course is to learn how Building Information Modeling (BIM) can bring different disciplines together in a coordinated way to facilitate the design of a building. The course will build on the CAD skills learned in Construction CAD I to develop a more complex commercial BIM project that includes Architecture, MEP services and structural systems. Students will learn various AEC concepts and terms as well as how to organize a set of construction documents.
NCIM-214
3 Credits
Students develop engineering skills in engineering graphics and solid modeling. Students will primarily use computer-aided drafting (CAD) as a tool to generate 2D graphics and 3D solid models. The course is laboratory oriented and provides the student with basic skills in spatial visualization, freehand sketching, parametric solid modeling, and creation of engineering drawings which meet industrial drafting standards.
NCAD-170
3 Credits
The objective of this course is to learn the fundamental concepts of building information modeling (BIM) and how computer aided drafting (CAD) is used to produce basic construction documents. Students will learn to create a basic BIM project as well as learn basic AEC concepts and terms. Students will also develop effective time management skills and file management strategies.
NCAD-199
1 - 5 Credits
The description for each Independent Study request will be specified in each student proposal.
NETS-150
3 Credits
This introductory course investigates basic engineering concepts and how they relate to traditional manufacturing processes and techniques. Topics will emphasize the design of components through the use of solid modeling, dimensioning, tolerancing, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, and statistics. In a related laboratory course, students will be expected to build, inspect, and integrate their designs.
NETS-151
1 Credits
This lab course integrates basic manufacturing techniques with engineering design concepts. Traditional machine shop tools and precision measuring instruments will be used by the students as they create the objects that they designed in the related classroom course.
