LANSING COMMUNITY COLLEGE

 

CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Computer-Aided Drafting/Design

Associate in Applied Science Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0165  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

This program prepares individuals to apply technical skills and advanced computer software and hardware to the creation of graphic representations and simulations in support of engineering projects.  Students receive instruction in the use of engineering graphics, two-dimensional and three-dimensional engineering design graphics, parametric solid modeling, animation, sketching and illustration, and specification interpretation.  Proficiency in the use of current computer-aided design packages, geometric tolerancing techniques, and descriptive geometry applications is necessary to succeed in the industrial workplace.  Employment possibilities include engineering firms, consulting firms, the automotive industry, manufacturers of special machinery, the tool and die industry, etc.  Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.

 

PREREQUISITES
Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section for skills assessment and advising information.
