Period 1 Architectural Design
ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN (CAD)
Grades 10-12 Year-long 1 credit
Architectural Design provides an opportunity for problem solving and design as related to residential house planning through the Computer Aided Design system (CAD). The student will select a building lot locally and then prepare and produce a complete set of construction plans. Technical drawing skills previously obtained in Engineering Graphics are utilized to draw up preliminary house designs which are then finalized on the CAD system. Drawings include a plot plan, floor plan, elevations, electrical and plumbing plans and a door/window schedule. The majority of classroom time centers about the CAD system. Students interested in engineering should elect CAD and electronics course.
