Course Links T166 Computer Aided Drafting and Graphics
In the T166 course, students will be exposed to three different content areas: engineering, architecture, and animation. Students will be using Autodesk Inventor to learn about engineering drafting in both 2D and 3D environments. Students will create, develop, and test the function of their designs within the engineering software. Students will utilize Chief Architect for the architectural portion of the class in which they will focus on residential floor plan design. Students will learn about traffic flow, the three main areas of a home, proper design of homes, building codes and many other architecture related topics. Finally, in animation students will use Autodesk 3D Studio Max in which they will create animations of their creations they developed in both engineering and architecture. This will include students creating several short length animations. Students who complete T166 with a “B” or higher may be eligible for college credit when completing advanced coursework at Harper College.
PREREQUISITE: LEVEL 1 with concurrent enrollment in Algebra or higher.
LEVEL: 1,2,3,4

One Year - One Credit

Teacher: Mr. Walser

 

T266 Explorations in Architecture and Engineering
In the T266 course, students will further their knowledge in the three content areas: architecture, engineering, and animation. The first semester will be broken down into a series of 6 week sessions, touching base on each of the three content areas. The engineering session focuses on complex assemblies and specialty views. The architecture session focuses on architectural home styles, the reading of plan sets, and framing. The animation session focuses on continuing students’ ability to model, set cameras, and create more detailed short length animations. During second semester students are able to pursue the field of their choice. During this period students will continue to advance their knowledge working on student-selected large scale projects. Students who complete T266 with a “B” or higher may be eligible for college credit when completing advanced coursework at Harper College.
PREREQUISITE: Computer Aided Drafting and Graphics T166.

T366, T466 CAD Drafting Independent Study
Students who want to further their drafting skills and gain additional experience in industrial related computer aided drafting are encouraged to enroll. Individualized work in selected areas of industrial drafting is planned with the instructor. This is an opportunity for students to become more self-directed in developing skills in an area of their choice.
PREREQUISITE: Instructor’s approval and successful completion of T266 Explorations in Architecture and Engineering.
LEVEL: 3,4
