This course is an introduction to the use of computer-aided drafting (CAD) as used in the interior design field. Upon successful completion of this course, the student should be able to draw floor plans and elevations of interiors using a computer-aided drafting system. AutoCAD LT software will be used. 2 hrs. lecture, 3 hrs. lab/wk. Drafting classes that have additional lab have either the time and room listed or TBA (to be announced) with the room number listed. Note: Prerequisites ITMD 123 and ITMD 129 require a grade of "C" or higher. Note: An honors contract is available. Contact the Honors Program Office, COM 201, for more information.
Associated Costs: These are additional (out-of-pocket) expense considerations that students should expect in addition to the course tuition, fees, and textbooks. $10 to 15.
