Computer Aided Drafting & Design Skills


The Computer Aided Drafting & Design Skills focuses on the use of AutoCAD and MicroStation which are most common softwares used in the industrial and engineering companies. Students are trained practically starting from the basic levels such as learning how to setup the draw­ing file, Units, layers, line types and other formats to the advances skills like for example three dimensional model­ing. Whenever there is a new topic introduced to the stu­dents, there is a proper amount of practical exercises and assignments students have to do to go to the next level and so on. The most important techniques used in the training is that students use AutoCAD and MicroStation at the same time and compare interface, tools, options and topics that are similar in both programs. Students then use these two programs as tools in three main applications which are Architectural, Mechanical and Process Piping applications and learning each applica­tion's terminology, stan­dards, techniques, drawing styles and specifications.

On the last semester, student will be introduced to advanced 3D modeling and visualizing programs such as SolidWorks and 3ds Max.
