A fee may be required in these courses

CAD Mechanical Design 1 - Course #8400 | Credit (CTE) | Grade 10-12 | 0.5 Credits
This is the first instructional course in a sequence of courses that prepares the individuals to develop technical knowledge and skills required to plan and prepare scale pictorial interpretations of engineering and design concepts. This includes instruction in the use of 2D/3D CAD software, sketching, drawing, layout, geometric construction, orthographic projection, and dimensioning. Participation in the SkillsUSA youth leadership organization may be an integral part of this course.

CAD Mechanical Design 2 - Course #8402 | Credit (CTE) | Grade 11, 12 | 0.5 Credits
Prerequisite: CAD Design 1
This course is the second in a sequence of courses that prepares individuals with an understanding in the application required to produce a workable drawing. Good sketching techniques should be emphasized when preparing to start a working drawing. Drawings that are assigned should complement the competency and require the student to solve problems, not just copy. Participation in the SkillsUSA youth leadership organization may be an integral part of this course.

CAD Mechanical Design 3 - Course #8412 | Credit (CTE) | Grade 11, 12 | 0.5 Credits
Prerequisite: CAD Design 1 and CAD Design 2
This course is the third in a sequence of courses that prepares individuals with an emphasis in developing technical knowledge and skills to develop working drawings in support of mechanical and industrial engineers, and related professionals. This includes instruction in the use of 3D Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software, threads and fasteners, welding symbols, geometric dimensioning and assemblies.

CAD Architectural Design 1 - Course #8403 | Credit (CTE) | Grade 10-12 | 0.5 Credits
This is the first instructional course in a sequence of courses that prepares individuals with knowledge of residential architectural and related construction. This course includes instruction in architectural blueprint reading, sketching, residential floor plans, exterior elevations, and use of CAD software. Participation in the SkillsUSA youth leadership organization may be an integral part of this course.

CAD Architectural Design 2 - Course #8401 | Credit (CTE) | Grade 11, 12 | 0.5 Credits
Prerequisite: Architectural Design 1
This course is the second in in a sequence of courses that prepares individuals with knowledge of residential architectural and related construction. This course includes instruction in building materials, building codes, typical wall sections, interior elevations, plot plans, Specifications, electrical plans, architectural renderings, and Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software with a major emphasis on 3D. Participation in the SkillsUSA youth leadership organization may be an integral part of this course.

CAD Architectural Design 3 - Course #8415 | Credit (CTE) | Grade 11, 12 | 0.5 Credits
Prerequisite: Architectural Design 2
This course is the third instructional course that prepares individuals with knowledge of residential architectural and related construction. This course includes instruction in building materials, building codes, typical wall sections, interior elevations, plot plans, specifications, electrical plans, architectural renderings and CAD software with a major emphasis on 3D. Participation in Skills USA may be an integral part of this course.
