DEPARTMENT OF
MATHEMATICS/COMPUTER SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING

1. **Course
title**: Intermediate
AutoCad

2. **Prerequisite**: ENGR 1011 or consent
of the instructor.

3. **Textbook**: Your AutoCAD 2000 Instructor by James
A. Leach. McGraw-Hill Publishers. ISBN 0-07-234761-9

**4.
****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.

**Course
objective:** To introduce students to advanced features of the
widely chosen computer-aided design software AutoCAD to effectively:

1. Create, insert and edit blocks with
attributes.

2. Extract attribute data from a drawing.

3.
Use the display controls needed for viewing three-dimensional drawings.

4. Use three-dimensional drawing aids.

5. Produce
three-dimensional representations.

6. Basic
concepts of rendering

**7.
****General notes:**

a.
Instructor
should note that the class may consist of students registered as credit and
some as non-credit.

b.
The
evaluation procedure is mandatory for the grade for credit students and
optional for non-credit students.

c.
Non-credit
students are given a certificate at the end of course after successful
completion of all instructor assigned work.

8**. Evaluation:**

The emphasis should be on measuring the level of expertise
achieved in applying the software commands to successfully reproduce
2-dimensional drawings. The details of grade determination are flexible however
one recommended procedure would be to weigh the four components as follows:

Labs/Homework:
15%-20%

Tests
(two): 30%

Project:
20%

Final
Examination: 30-35%
