AutoCAD

Introduction
This Course is designed for a Learner who is involved in the Architectural and Engineering design fields and for those interested in Computer Aided Design (CAD). Learner will be introduced to Computer Aided Drafting skills. The aim of CAD is to introduce Learners to basic information, skills and concepts related to drafting and designing with the help of Computers & Primary CAD Software like AutoCAD.

Why take admission?

This course will lead the Learner to a career path in Design industry in which S/he creates & edit Architectural Floor Plans for Residential & Commercial Buildings, Interior Layout, Furniture Designs, Landscape Gardens, Front & Side Elevations, Working Drawings, Location Plans, etc. S/he also creates Engineering Machinery, Automobile Parts & Assembly drawings as well.

Academic Approach

The Academic Approach of the course focuses on the “work centric” education i.e. begin with work (and not from a book !), derive knowledge from work and apply that knowledge to make the work more wholesome, useful and delightful. The ultimate objective is to empower the Learner to engage in socially useful and productive work. It aims at leading the learner to his/her rewarding career as well as development of the society.

Work Environment
The learner will be able to drafts the drawings like 2D (Two Dimensional) Plans, Elevations, Sections, Top View, Front View, Side View & Isometric, etc. At the end of the course, the Learner will gain competencies to appear for the International Autodesk Certification: AutoCAD Certified User.
Learning methodology

Learners are given an overview of the course and its connection to life and work.

Learners are then exposed to the specific tool(s) used in the course through the various real-life applications of the tool(s).

Learners are then acquainted with the careers and the hierarchy of roles they can perform at workplaces after attaining increasing levels of mastery over the tool(s).

Learners are then acquainted with the architecture of the tool or Tool Map so as to appreciate various parts of the tool, their functions and their inter-relations.

Learners are then exposed to simple application development methodology by using the tool at the beginner’s level

Learners then perform the differential skills related to the use of the tool to improve the given ready-made outputs.

Learners are then engaged in appreciation of real-life case studies developed by the experts.

Learners are then encouraged to proceed from appreciation to imitation of the experts.

After imitation experience, they are required to improve the expert’s outputs so that they proceed from mere imitation to emulation.

Finally, they develop the integral skills involving optimal methods and best practices to produce useful outputs right from scratch, publish them in their ePortfolio and thereby proceed from emulation to self-expression.
