The primary objective of this course is to introduce the subject of structural steel drafting, emphasizing the process of preparing structural steel fabrication drawings for commercial and industrial building applications. The course provides students with a fundamental and practical knowledge of how the structural steel is used to construct support frames for modern commercial and industrial buildings. It ties together the relationship between the types of drawings made in design office and those prepared in structural fabrication offices.
