CET 158 - Introduction to Drafting

Credits: 4
Lecture Hours: 4
Lab Hours: 0
Practicum Hours: 0
Work Experience: 0
Course Type: Voc/Tech
This course will introduce the student to computer-aided drafting (CAD) utilizing Microstation software. Microstation fundamentals will be taught, including drawing formats, placing and manipulating elements, measurements, cells, patterning, dimensioning, reference files and three-dimensional modeling. Drawings will be created and plotted.
Prerequisite: CET 101
