Prerequisites: DFTG 1305 and DFTG 1433 with a grade of "C" or better.

DFTG 1305. TECHNICAL DRAFTING
(LECTURE 2, LAB 2). CREDIT 3. WECM.

Introduction to the principles of drafting, such as terminology and fundamentals, including size and shape descriptions, preparation methods, geometric construction, sections, auxiliary views and reproduction processes.

DFTG 1417. ARCHITECTURAL DRAFTING - RESIDENTIAL
(LECTURE 3, LAB 3). CREDIT 4. WECM.

Architectural drafting procedures, practices, terms, and symbols. Preparation of detailed working drawings for residential structures. Emphasis on light frame construction methods.

DFTG 1433. MECHANICAL DRAFTING
(LECTURE 3, LAB 3). CREDIT 4. WECM.

Study of mechanical drawings using dimensioning and tolerances, sectioning techniques, orthographic projection, and pictorial drawings.

DFTG 1445. PARAMETRIC MODELING AND DESIGN
(LECTURE 3, LAB 3). CREDIT 4. WECM.

Use parametric modeling techniques to create rendered assemblies, orthographic drawings, auxiliary views, and details from 3-dimensional models. Prerequisite: DFTG 1305 and DFTG 1433 with grade of "C" or better.

DFTG 2381. COOPERATIVE EDUCATION - DRAFTING
(LECTURE 1, COOP 20). CREDIT 3. WECM.

Career-related activities encountered in the student's area of specialization are offered through a cooperative agreement between the college, employer, and the student. Under supervision of the college and the employer, the student combines classroom learning with work experience. Directly related to a technical discipline, specific learning objectives guide the student through the work experience. This course may be repeated if topics and learning outcomes vary.

DFTG 2419. INTERMEDIATE COMPUTER-AIDED DRAFTING
(LECTURE 3, LAB 3). CREDIT 4. WECM.

A continuation of practices and techniques used in basic computer-aided drafting, emphasizing extended use of two-dimensional commands such as paper space, and introduction to the extraction of attributes and three-dimensional drafting. Prerequisites: DFTG 1305 and DFTG 1433 with a grade of "C" or better.

DFTG 2423. PIPE DRAFTING
(LECTURE 3, LAB 3). CREDIT 4. WECM.

A study of pipe fittings, symbols, specifications and their applications to a piping process system. Creation of symbols and their usage in flow diagrams, plans, elevations and isometrics. Prerequisites: DFTG 1305 and DFTG 1433 with a grade of "C" or better.

DFTG 2430. CIVIL DRAFTING
(LECTURE 3, LAB 3). CREDIT 4. WECM.

An in-depth study of drafting methods and principles used in civil engineering. Prerequisites: DFTG 1305 and DFTG 1433 with a grade of "C" or better.

DFTG 2432. ADVANCED COMPUTER-AIDED DRAFTING
(LECTURE 3, LAB 3). CREDIT 4. WECM.

An advanced level course. This course will cover advanced techniques, including the use of a customized system as well as presentation of advanced drawing applications, such as three-dimensional solid modeling and linking graphic entities to external non-graphic data. Prerequisite: DFTG 1305 and DFTG 1433 with a grade of "C" or better.

DFTG 2438. FINAL PROJECT - ADVANCED DRAFTING
(LECTURE 3, LAB 3). CREDIT 4. WECM.

Conceptualize, design and present a complete project in a prescribed discipline. Integrate problem solving and related technologies to identify solutions; use discipline specific industry standards, and produce documentation.
