Certificate Type: C.C.
Major Code: CADDADV-CC
This advanced program further prepares students for employment as designers/drafters. The program provides students a broad base of advanced drafting/design instruction and its applications in various design professions. Manual and CAD-based training is included. Students who complete this certificate may also pursue the Associate in Science (A.S.) degree in Computer-Aided Drafting and Design at Seminole State.
|ARC1301||Architectural Design I|
This course introduces the student to the basic concepts of building design and spatial analysis. Drafting skills and the concepts of graphic communication are introduced and developed. Lab fee required.
|BCN2230||Construction Materials and Methods I|
An introduction to the art of building, this course deals with whole systems of building: heavy timber framing, wood platform framing, masonry load bearing wall, structural steel framing, concrete framing and enclosures. The evolutionary development of the system, the properties of its major materials, the possibilities and limitations of the building method and the basis for choosing among systems is covered.
Blueprint Reading is a study of the principles involved in the use and interpretation of drawings and specifications commonly used in light construction. Topics include history of recorded drawings, architectural and structural details, materials, structural, mechanical and electrical systems and related building code requirements. Lab fee required.
|BCT1001||Applied Mathematical Concepts for Design and Construction|
This course provides the practical mathematical skills needed in the architectural, construction and associated subcontract professions. The course helps to convey basic mathematical concepts and their specific applications into the architecture and construction industry. The direct, practical approach emphasizes careful, complete explanations with actual on-the-job examples. This course will provide a summary/review of basic mathematical concepts: Arithmetic, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry.
|Note: MAC 1105 or higher level mathematics course may substitute for BCT 1001.|
|EGS1111C||Engineering Graphics - Drawing|
This course is an introduction to the techniques of mechanical drawing for three-dimensional spatial relationships, spatial visualization, sketching and graphical presentation. Engineering drawing, descriptive geometry and graphical solution techniques using both manual and computer methods will be emphasized. Lab fee required.
|ETD1320C||Computer-Aided Design I|
The purpose of this course is to help drafting students develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to work at an entry-level job in such positions as CAD technician trainee, CAD system operator or CAD technician. This course is designed for students who have already received in-depth training in one or more application areas. Lab fee required.
|ETD1340C||Computer-Aided Design II|
In this course students will learn advanced two- and three-dimensional drafting techniques. Menu and program modification will be emphasized along with improved speed and accuracy. Lab fee required.
|ETD2390||Computer-Aided Design III (Revit)|
This course is a three-dimensional CAD course which introduces the student to Autodesk Revit Software. The student learns to work with architectural computer models rather than the basic geometric drawing approach. The Revit platform for building information modeling is a complete design and documentation solution which supports all phases of design, drawing production and schedule development for a given project. This software allows the student to work in various views of the parametric building model at the same time.
