Intro to Industrial Technology : (Course Syllabi )This semester-long course is designed to make the student aware of the processes, machines, terminology, materials, and safety used in the industrial/technical trades. Students will do reading, written work, drafting, math, problem solving, teamwork, tests, and hands-on projects in the areas of communication, transportation / energy / power, manufacturing, and construction.
Architectural Millwork : ( Course Syllabi ) In this course students will complete a minimum of one piece of cabinetry/furniture that has at least one drawer and/or door (all projects must be approved by the instructor); when the first project is near completion a second project must be ready for production.
Students will: 1) learn how to read and/or prepare drawings and plans 2) learn how to prepare a bill of materials 3) learn good design principles 4) learn the how, what, why and when of selecting appropriate materials 5) learn the procedures and techniques used in cabinetmaking 6) learn and use the three processes of separating, forming and combining 7) learn good safety practices
Mechanical CAD (DMACC CAD 119) Concurrent Enrollment Course: (DMACC curriculum: CAD 119 ) ( Course Syllabi ) This course is designed for students interested in learning about the equipment, techniques, terminology, and computer software used to create images or drawings of an object. This course involves 6-weeks or pencil and paper drawing activities, and 12-weeks of computer-aided-drafting. Students anticipating entering post-secondary education in an engineering-related and / or manufacturing field should enroll in this course. This course is a prerequisite to Advanced CAD and Architectural Design and Modeling. (* This course is a pre-requisite for Advanced CAD / CAM and Architectural Design and Modeling )
Advanced Mechanical CAD / CAM (DMACC CAD 125) Concurrent Enrollment Course: (DMACC curriculum: CAD 125 ) ( Course Syllabi ) ( * Pre-requisite: Mechanical CAD : DMACC CAD 119 ) This course is designed for students interested in broadening their skill in the drafting-related areas. Units of instruction will include a review of basic CAD techniques, computer numerical control (CNC) projects, and three-dimensional (3D) design work. There is a definite relationship the drafting areas and manufacturing areas of industry. Students anticipating entering post-secondary education in an engineering-related and/or manufacturing field should enroll in this course.
Architectural Design & Modeling (DMACC CON 337 & 341) Concurrent Enrollment Course: (DMACC curriculum: CON 337 / CON 341 ) ( Course Syllabi ) The focus of this of this course will be to develop knowledge and skills in residential and light commercial design by using Chief Architect computer software. This program makes it easy for you to visualize your ideas for the homes you will design. Upon completion of this course, students should develop good practices and proper techniques when drawing a house frame, roof, stairs, foundation, and interior design. We will do several practical lab activities to compliment the information presented in class.
Advanced Architectural Materials & Systems (DMACC CON 338 & 346) Concurrent Enrollment Course: (DMACC curriculum: CON 338 / CON 346 ) ( Course Syllabi ) The focus of this of this course is to further develop the skills gained in Architectural Design and Modeling class. A majority of the class will be focused Chief Architect computer software, concrete systems and forming, and methods involved in the application of building materials. Part of the class will be spent using a transit, building and setting batter boards, squaring a building site, and building / pouring concrete in a construction form. In depth study of construction materials applications, fastening systems, framing problems, and building codes will be covered.
Architectural Creations (DMACC CAD126) Concurrent Enrollment Course: (DMACC curriculum: CAD 126 ) ( Course Syllabi ) The focus of this class will be to gain further knowledge and skills in residential and light commercial design by using Chief Architect computer software. Two-dimensional plans ( including plumbing, HVAC, electrical, etc. ) will be developed. Three-dimensional models, site plans, and presentation are some of the topics that will be explored. We will do several field trips as well as practical lab activities to compliment the information presented in class. When the class is completed, students will present their project to instructors in the CAD program from the DMACC campus.
Home Repair & Maintenance: ( Course Syllabi ) This course covers how to become your own personal home handyman by offering students lessons on a variety of home maintenance topics. From learning how to repair holes in walls, fixing leaky faucets, installing new fixtures, basic carpentry and painting, repairing plumbing and wiring problems to knowing when it's time to call the professionals, this course covers it all. This course is a must for everyone regardless of age or gender.
