AutoCAD 1 AICO 1000

Computer Aided Design & Engineering Part-time Studies Course

Course details

The first step in using computer aided design (CAD) software requires a solid foundation of the user interface, commands and features of the CAD software. This intensive, hands-on course prepares the student with the knowledge and skills necessary for creating a basic 2D working drawing using AutoCAD. Topics include CAD concepts, file management, the viewing, drawing, and editing of drawings as well the placement of text and dimensions onto a drawing layout in preparation for plotting. The expectation is that students are proficient in the use of a computer including file and folder management. Students should also be familiar with the fundamentals of technical drawing.
