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. Offered spring only.

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, including the development and use of prototype drawings, construction of pictorial drawings, extracting data, and basics of 3D. Prerequisites: DFTG 1305 and DFTG 1433 with a grade of "C" or better. Offered spring only.

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. Offered fall only.

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