WELCOME to Engineering Design and Drafting II

The content of the EDD II curriculum is designed to familiarize students with the concepts and principles associated with Solid Modeling and the basics of Architectural Drafting. The software used throughout the course will be Auto-Cad Inventor 2015 and Chief Architect. During the first phase, students will be introduced to sketching, solid modeling, reverse engineering and basic computerized numerical control(CNC) programming/ machining. A second phase will consist of an introduction to Architectural Drafting. Real Estate introduction, building site preparation, basic construction practices and house model construction will be explored.
