By arrangement with advisor. Directed study is to provide an opportunity for the student to continue study in a subject area of special interest or special concern, related directly to an actual job opportunity within the drafting curriculum.
Through the use of standard industrial codes and formulas to write computer programs that will enable CNC machining centers and CNC turning centers to produce parts, within quality standards. To be able to write these CNC programs both from scratch and with the use of commercially available CNC programming software.
After a thorough understanding of all technical illustration concepts and techniques, the student is now required to master isometric exploded view technical illustrations. The student must be able to supply a complete component list with each illustration. The student must also supply complete assembly instructions (sequence of operations) explaining how this job is put together and functions. Each completed job must be press ready.
This course will include the necessary theory and laboratory application in the design of chemical processing plant layout. Calling upon skills developed in prerequisite coursework, in addition to Industrial Process Piping Plant Layout standards, students will create an actual CAD model of a plant that they have designed for a comprehensive understanding of piping plant design.
Introduction to commercial print techniques. This course builds and adds on to computer commercial art. It is now necessary that the student take the material and information he/she has learned to the next level. Field trips to industry and local print shop are important so that the student receives a thorough understanding of the whole technical illustration process for an idea for a final printed piece.
In this course students will master isometric exploded view technical illustration, including such topics as applications, pictorial selections, and illustration techniques. In addition students will learn about basic printing process, scaling artwork for press runs and coordinating with printing firms. The student will also supply complete assembly instructions (sequence of operations) explaining how this job is put together and functions.
This course will facilitate the concepts and principals employed by drafters in the Industrial Process Piping industry. Using practical laboratory application with topics including flow diagrams, orthographic and isometric spool drawings, plan & elevation piping arrangements, selection of valves, pipe racks and supports. Students will generate a variety of accurate CAD piping assignments similar to the ones currently used in industry today.
This course shall be considered a capstone project for the authentic assessment of the curriculum. The student shall select a project that shall challenge the student and demonstrate various abilities and skills acquired in their previous classes. This project shall include an oral presentation along with a written report and a demonstration of their chosen project. This demonstration may include all associated drawings, a finished part of their design, and an electronic "slide show". This course is designed as a research/lab course to design/improve a consumer product.
This course will address advanced layout techniques and practices that are typical in the design industry. Students will be presented with design concepts and will use problem solving techniques to accomplish tasks. The course includes the study of power transfer systems such as couplings, chain and sprocket drives, and the use of motors and bearings. Instruction in the application of clutches, and their uses in machine design, will also be stressed.
In this course students will prepare layouts of single and double line drawings for hydraulic and pneumatic systems, and will also study and apply mathematic calculations as they pertain to their assignments. The use of vendor catalogs and live components are used in the preparation of the above-mentioned drawings. The student will also prepare a sequence of operations explaining how each schematic operates.
