CREDIT HOURS			4 semester hours
COURSE TITLE			Intermediate AutoCAD
PREREQUISITES			ENGR 100 or consent of the instructor

CATALOG DESCRIPTION
This is the second of a two part course which continues with the review of 
basic commands of AutoCAD for windows to produce two dimensional drawings 
and provides hands on instruction in using this industry standard software 
to create three dimensional engineering drawings and solid modeling.

EXPECTED EDUCATIONAL RESULTS
As a result of completing this course, the student will be able to do the following:
	1.	Create and insert blocks with attributes.
	2.	Edit attributes.
	3.	Extract attribute data from a drawing.
	4.	Use the display controls needed for viewing three-dimensional drawings.
	5.	Use three-dimensional drawing aids.
	6.	Produce three-dimensional representations.
	7.	Make and view slides, use script files to produce slide shows.


GENERAL EDUCATION OUTCOMES
I. This course addresses the general education outcome relating to communications 
as follows:
	A.	Students enhance reading skills by reading topics from assigned 
		text book/reference.
	B.	Students develop writing skills by providing short answers to test 
		questions.
	C. 	Students improve their listening skills by actively participating in 
		class discussion/lecture or demonstration to learn basic drawing/editing 
		commands of the software to produce three- dimensional engineering drawings.  

II. This course addresses the general education outcome relating to problem-solving and 
critical thinking skills by making them an important part of their course work. Students 
learn to apply technical problem-solving and use critical thinking techniques to plan 
preliminary steps needed to start a drawing and to implement most efficient way to 
complete it. The class/home assignments attempt to enhance their ability to learn 
and practice commands on drawing exercises from many disciplines.

III. This course addresses the general education outcome relating to mathematical 
concepts, usage and scientific inquiry as follows:
	Use of appropriate scales and units to produce drawings from engineering 
	disciplines. Develop and apply mastery on the use of cartesian/polar coordinate 
	system for solid modeling.

	Assignments require calculations based on geometry to determine sizes of planar 
	figures and use of coordinates for construction multi-views.

	Students organize and analyze the information required to produce drawings by 
	Computer-Assisted Design and Drafting software package.


COURSE CONTENT
	1. Block attributes(5%)
	2. Slides, scripts and slide shows(5%)
	3. User coordinate systems (5%)
	4. Display controls, view-points, view-ports, dynamic views (10%)
	5. Paper-space techniques; 3D polylines, xyz filters (5%)
	6. Wire-frame modeling concepts : elevation, thickness and Hide(15%)
	7. Surface modeling concepts: 3dface, 3dmesh, revsurf, tabsurf, edgesurf, rulesurf (20%)
	8. Solid modeling concepts: boolean operations, extrusions, revolutions, intersections, 
		3D primitives (20%)
	9. Editing 3D drawings (10%)
	10. Photo-realistic rendering and shading (5%)


ENTRY LEVEL COMPETENCIES
	Upon entering this course the student should be able to do the following:
	Satisfy course objectives as described in common course outline of ENGR100.

ASSESSMENT OF EXPECTED EDUCATIONAL RESULTS

I.	COURSE GRADE
	The course grade is to be determined by the individual instructor by variety 
	of evaluation techniques consistent with the overall college policy including 
	the class attendance. The procedure should include at least two tests (30% to 35%) 
	and a comprehensive final examination (25% to 30%) a final drawing project (20%) 
	and class/home work (25%). The student with approval of the instructor should 
	select final drawing project. Instructor must ensure that project approved employs 
	at least 80-90% of all commands in the software that were covered in the course.  

II.	DEPARTMENTAL ASSESSMENT
	Assessment of the expected educational results of this course must be conducted 
	every five years. The assessment instrument will be a drawing project and 
	selected questions that cover majority of the topics in the course content section 
	from the final examination. 

III.	USE OF ASSESSMENT FINDINGS
	The Engineering committee will evaluate the findings and determine the level of 
	success in expected educational results in the form of a report and consider 
	recommending to the Discipline Academic Group executive committee, any changes 
	in the curriculum.
