The curriculum prepares students to be intermediate users of 3-dimensional Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Building Information Management (BIM) software to solve building and construction design problems using the principles and standards of Sustainable Technology. A CAD Technician supports design activities with knowledge of sustainable production processes and industry standards. Job functions include interpreting building codes, LEED and current industry sustainability standards, formulas or data for building design, geometric problem solving, interpretation of designs for the development of blueprints, presentations of design reviews, and collaborating in design projects. This course of study prepares participants for successful completion of LEED accreditation at the Associates Level.
Certificate of Achievement is awarded upon completion of all required courses with a grade of C or better.
- Communicate effectively using technical, graphical, oral and written formats.
- Demonstrate appropriate mastery of industry technical graphic standards, Computer-Aided Design, Building Information Modeling strategies and techniques, and rapid prototyping and sustainable technologies in the design and representation of architectural, engineering and construction systems.
- Demonstrate appropriate mastery of industry technical graphical standards in the critical analysis of technical graphics and digital prototypes of architectural, engineering and construction systems or processes.
- Collaborate effectively in teams to produce comprehensive design technology solutions to architectural, engineering and construction systems and processes.
