AutoCAD Module 1

Course Code CECA-931
Course Name AutoCAD Module 1
Category Engineering Technology & Applied Science
Description In just seven weeks, AutoCAD Module 1 will introduce you to one of the most versatile and popular Computer-Assisted-Drafting (CAD) software packages currently available.

AutoCAD provides numerous tools and methods for producing, viewing and editing two and three-dimensional drawings in any discipline. In this hands-on course, you will explore the basic principles and operational techniques necessary to effectively use the AutoCAD software in a two-dimensional environment. Among specific topics covered in AutoCAD Module 1 will be system fundamentals, basic and advanced drawing commands, drawing by coordinate entry, dimensioning, hatching and more.

Because classes will be designed to emphasize hands-on experience, in each session specific exercises that clearly illustrate basic AutoCAD commands will be assigned. Weekly instruction will be provided in one of the College's AutoCAD labs during a three-hour class consisting of a brief lecture on software technique followed by a lab session, which will reiterate the theory.

Successfully completing this offering will allow you to:

• Comprehend some of the fundamental graphic language concepts of mechanical engineering drafting (CSA standards);
• Utilize the AutoCAD graphic interface and command/menu system;
• Access standard drawing templates and set up the drawing environment and scale;
• Use the fundamental drawing commands of the AutoCAD software;
• Apply basic draw, dimension and modify menu commands to create various 2D drawings;
• Make use of the linetype and hatch commands;
• Set up and use the plot commands to output drawings to the printer/plotter;
• Organize and manage (for example, save and retrieve) drawing files.
Notes IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please note that campuses are only open in a limited capacity, due to COVID-19. For the Winter 2021 semester, this course will be delivered in a "Teaching at a Distance" format, and NOT at the campus location shown beside the course offering, below. "Teaching at a Distance" means you learn in a virtual classroom, in real time, with a live instructor. You will require a computer with internet access, camera and microphone. We will provide access to a student license for AutoCAD, to be downloaded on your own computer. This course is very conducive to a TAAD format, and has been successfully delivered in a TAAD format on a number of occasions.

If you check the COVID-19 information centre at the top of the page, you will see weekly case updates. In light of this reality, a virtual classroom is the safest option for everyone involved.
