|Architectural Drafting & Design Program
ARC 101—Building Materials and Estimating 3-0-3
Students in the architectural drafting and design program learn to translate the ideas, rough sketches, specifications and calculations of architects into working drawings for production and construction.
> Architectural Drafting and Design - AAS
Surveys building materials and characteristics used in the construction industry. Course also covers various construction techniques, principles, and cost estimating.
ARC 102—Contracts and Specifications 3-0-3
Covers the basic principles of written contracts and their format. Topics include specifications, language, techniques, and bidding and contract responsibilities. Study of building codes and building applications for various types of structures. Prerequisite: ARC 105
ARC 105—Architectural Drafting I 2-4-4
Provides a practical approach as it relates to current common architectural drafting standard practices. The principle objectives are basic understanding of orthographic projection, size description and notation. National building codes UBC, SBC, and BOCA are introduced.
ARC 106—Architectural Drafting II 2-4-4
Provides students with more advanced drafting techniques and competencies by applying information about building components to draw detailed sets of architectural construction drawings and improve perception and awareness of problems related to design. Prerequisite: ARC 105
ARC 119—Introduction to Surveying 2-2-3
Study includes linear measurements with tape; differential leveling and vertical control measurements; vertical angles with transit; closed traverse work utilizing bearing, azimuth and deflection methods; use of coordinate systems, computation of areas; stadia and topographic surveying. Bench mark and profile leveling for computation and data for application of cut and fill requirements in road or development construction will also be covered. Prerequisite: MTH 108
ARC 199—Architectural Drafting and 1-12-3
Design Internship Students will obtain experience in the architectural drafting and design field through a combination of occupational instruction and on-the-job training. This course integrates classroom occupational study with a planned supervised practical work experience. Prerequisite: Permission of instructor
ARC 210—Architectural AutoCAD I 2-4-4
Continues the study of architectural drawing, detailing and illustration through the assimilation of computer software. (AutoCAD, version 2006 will be used.)
ARC 211—Architectural AutoCAD II 2-4-4
A continuation of ARC 210. This course teaches advanced drawing and editing commands that may be used to create 2D architectural drawings. Ordinate dimensions, drawing/plotting scales, symbols/ block usage, attributes, Xreferences and paper space applications are covered. (AutoCAD version 2006 will be used.) Prerequisite: ARC 210
ARC 215—Architectural Presentation 2-4-4
Students will develop and deliver a presentation on a specific project approved by their instructor. Coordination of previous skills on independent projects utilizing manual drafting and computer graphics software for model building and design. (AutoCAD, version 2000) Prerequisite: ARC 210
ARC 262—Piping, Structural Detailing 2-4-4 and Electromechanical Drafting
AutoCAD application course that will include piping, structural detailing, electromechanical details, and working drawings. The student will experience more complicated problems in this course, and will coordinate previous skills for the graphical solutions. (AutoCAD, version 2000) Prerequisite: ARC 210
