Course: AutoCAD

Course Description
This module will introduce the students to the basic and advance techniques to solve drafting and design related problems. After the completion of this course, you will be able to use AutoCAD commands to make a drawing, create text, create and insert symbols, dimension a drawing, apply constraints to sketches, create blocks and dynamic blocks, and so on.

Class Hours:

Prerequisites: Need to be an Engineer/Technologist/Graduate with knowledge of Geometry concepts.

Textbook: AutoCAD 2015: A Problem-solving approach, basic and intermediate by Sham Tickoo and CADCIM Technologies.

Course Objectives:
Upon completion of the course, trainees/students will be able to:
  1. Create a basic 2D drawing in AutoCAD.
  2. Use of productivity tools.
  3. Plot a drawing.
Evaluation:There will be one exam that every trainee/student must pass with 75% or better score to get a certificate of completion from TIET.

Suggested Learning Approach
In this course, you will study individually or within a group of your peers. As you work on the course deliverables, you are encouraged to share ideas with your peers and instructor, work collaboratively on projects and team assignments, raise critical questions, and provide constructive feedback.
