DRFT 102 Building Construction
2 cr. (2 lec/wk) Prerequisites: DRFT 109 or DRFT 110. (F)
Studies methods and materials of construction for residential, light commercial and commercial buildings along with mechanical systems, electrical systems and specifications.
DRFT 104 Civil Technology
2 cr. (2 lec/wk) Prerequisites: DRFT 109 or DRFT 110. (Sp)
Field notes from surveys are reduced using calculators, traverses balanced, elevations determined, contours interpolated and areas determined. U.S. Public Land surveys are studied. Legal descriptions are written. Earthwork quantities are calculated from roadway cross-sections. Transportation and utility plans are studied.
DRFT 108 Introduction to CAD
3 cr. (2 lec/2 lab/wk) (F, Sp)
Introduces the student to CAD software. Commands relating to settings, drawing, editing, dimensioning, and viewing are used to create two-dimensional working drawings.
DRFT 109 Introduction to Technical Drawing
4 cr. (4 lec/wk) (F, Sp)
Presents basic mechanical drafting principles and techniques in a lecture format. Topics covered include geometric figures, multi-view working drawings, auxiliary views, sectional drawings, pattern drawings, and pictorial drawings. Correct application of CAD techniques and commands are also emphasized and integrated through the course to provide a solid foundation for future CAD classes. These CAD techniques include layer control, dimensioning techniques, file management, and the use of prototype drawings.
DRFT 110 Technical Drawing Lab
3 cr. (3 lab/wk) (F, Sp)
Uses computers to apply the mechanical drafting principles and techniques from DRFT 109 to specific assignments. Utilizing a CAD station, students create geometric figures, multi-view working drawings, auxiliary drawings, sectional drawings, pattern drawings, and pictorial drawings. Students then reproduce assigned drawings on a variety of output devices. Correct application of CAD techniques and commands are emphasized as additional subject matter is presented.

DRFT 128 3D Applications
3 cr. (2 lec/2 lab/wk) Prerequisites: DRFT 109 and CTDP 105. (F, Sp)
Introduces the student to the concepts of 3-dimensional drafting and design. The topics of viewing, coordinate systems, and object creation are applied to the construction of models and working drawings.
DRFT 138 Structural Drafting
3 cr. (2 lec/2 lab/wk) Prerequisites: DRFT 109 and CAPP 120. (Sp)
Prepares the student to enter the discipline of structural drafting. The structural drafting areas of concrete, steel, joist and deck roof systems, structural wood, and emerging systems are explored through the creation of working drawings. Communication interaction between construction entities is also incorporated.
CTDR 206 Programming Calculators
2 cr. Prerequisite: M 065.
Programmable hand-held calculators are used to solve a variety of mathematical problems ranging from moderate to advanced. Keystroke, programming and printing functions are covered as programs are created involving geometry and trigonometry. Documentation techniques are also reviewed.
