ARCHITECTURAL DRAWING AND DESIGN PATHWAY (Non-traditional pathway for females)

48.5410091 *INTRODUCTION TO ENGINEERING DRAWING AND DESIGN

 

Introduction to Engineering Drawing and Design is a foundation course that serves as an introduction to the drafting and design field and is a prerequisite to all other courses in the Engineering Drawing and Design program. Emphasis is placed on safety, geometric construction, fundamentals of Computer-Aided Drafting, and multi-view drawings. Students learn drafting techniques through the study of geometric construction at which time they are introduced to computer-aided drafting and design. The standards are aligned with the drafting and design standards in the Georgia’s technical colleges, thus helping students qualify for advanced placement should they continue their education at the postsecondary level. Further, the standards are aligned with the national standards of the American Design Drafting Association (ADDA). Students who successfully complete this and other drafting courses should be prepared to take the Drafter Certification Examination from the ADDA. Competencies for the co-curricular student organization, SkillsUSA, are integral components of both the core employability skills standards and the technical skills standards. SkillsUSA activities should be incorporated throughout instructional strategies developed for the course. 
 
This is the required introductory course in this career pathway.
 

48.5450092 *ARCHITECTURAL DRAWING AND DESIGN I

 

Architectural Drawing and Design I is a one-credit course that introduces students to the basic terminology, concepts, and principles of architectural design. Emphasis is placed on house designs,

floor plans, roof designs, elevations (interior and exterior), schedules, and foundations. The standards are aligned with the drafting and design standards in Georgia’s technical colleges, thus helping students qualify for advanced placement should they continue their education at the postsecondary level. Further, the standards are aligned with the national standards of the American Design Drafting Association (ADDA). Students who successfully complete this and other drafting courses should be prepared to take the Drafter Certification Examination from the ADDA.

48.5460093                 *ARCHITECTURAL DRAWING AND DESIGN II          
 
Architectural Drawing and Design II is a one-credit course that builds on the skills developed in Architectural Drawing and Design I. Emphasis is placed on schedules, plumbing, heating and air, graphic presentations, plot/site plans, specifications, and building estimations. While the term computer-aided design (CAD) does not appear in each competency, CAD tools and software should be used extensively throughout the course. The standards are aligned with the drafting and design standards in Georgia’s technical colleges, thus helping students qualify for advanced placement should they continue their education at the postsecondary level. Further, the standards are aligned with the national standards of the American Design Drafting Association (ADDA). Students who successfully complete this and other drafting courses should be prepared to take the Drafter Certification Examination from the ADDA.
