2D and 3D Modelling, Drawing and Documentation
You’ll develop a foundation in residential and commercial building drawings as well as mechanical drafting. You’ll get a working knowledge of CAD and other graphics-based software applications used within engineering, architecture and the high-tech sector.
What to expect
Throughout this rigorous program, you’ll spend from 26 to 29 hours a week in class, and each day you can expect three to four hours of homework. In return, you will develop a working knowledge of the graphics-based software applications used within engineering and architecture.
In your first term, you’ll update your computer skills, hone your technical writing and publishing skills, be introduced to residential building methods using 3D modelling software and learn the fundamentals of drawing for machines, using 3D modelling tools. You’ll also choose between mechanical manufacturing or building systems for your area of interest.
In this short half-semester term, you’ll learn about design visualization using the latest 3D tools including Augmented/Virtual Reality (AR/VR). You’ll learn about commercial construction methods, work on individual and group projects to develop your CAD skills and further develop your understanding of Technical specifications.
For your remaining 7 weeks, you will have the option of participating in a 7-week internship. Camosun will work with you to find a placement. During this unpaid work experience you will apply the skills you’ve obtained throughout the program.
The internship designation is an integrated component of this program. It is unpaid work experience that can enable you to experience employment opporunities and often leads to permanent employment.
