Drafting III – Engineering was designed to be a one unit course (135-180 hours of instruction). This course introduces students to the use of the graphics tools necessary to communicate, analyze, and understand the ideas and concepts found in the areas of engineering, science, and mathematics (STEM). Topics include job seeking and interview skills, the engineering design process, constraint-based/parametric modeling, threads & fasteners, working drawings, basic geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, and portfolio development. Skills in communication, mathematics, science, leadership, teamwork, and problem-solving are reinforced in this course. Hands-on work experience and Skills-USA leadership activities provide many opportunities to enhance classroom instruction and career development.
