DRAFTING G101 - 4 Units
Basic Computer Aided Design Drafting

(Formerly known as: Draft 101AB)
This lecture/lab course is a survey of the basic fundamentals of drafting using Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) and is designed to develop the ability to think in three dimensions and to interpret data from blueprints and sketches. The course includes: freehand sketching, use of dimensioning, multi-view projection, pictorial drawing, sectioning, and basic CAD menus. This course may be taken 2 times. Lecture & lab. Optional pass/no pass or grade. Transferable to CSU.

DRAFTING G105 - 3 Units
Basic Engineering Drafting I, Computer Aided Drafting

(Formerly known as: Drafting 105 & Draft 105AB)
The course will cover the study of correct letter styles for drafting, geometric construction, multi-view projection, basic dimensioning, threads & fasteners, isometric drawing and single auxiliary projection. All drafting problems will be drawn using computer aided drafting, (CAD), with AutoCAD software. This course may be taken 2 times. Lecture & lab. Letter grade only. Transferable to CSU.

DRAFTING G110 - 3 Units
Basic Engineering Drafting II, Computer Aided Drafting

(Formerly known as: Draft 100)
Advisories: Drafting G105
The course will cover precision dimensioning, threads & fasteners, working drawings and assemblies, isometric drawing, single and secondary auxiliary projection, basic descriptive geometry and writing resumes. All drafting problems will be drawn using computer aided drafting, (CAD) with AutoCAD software. Lecture & lab. Letter grade only. Transferable to CSU.

DRAFTING G170 - 3 Units
Advanced 3D Mechanical Design

(Formerly known as: Draft 170AB)
Advisories: Drafting G110
This is an advanced solid modeling design course for mechanical drafters, designers, and engineers. Students will use the most current Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) software and computer lab projects to develop solid models, assemblies and drawings and to solve mechanical design problems. This course may be taken 2 times. Lecture & lab. Optional pass/no pass or grade. Transferable to CSU.

MATHEMATICS G010 - 4 Units
Elementary Algebra

Prerequisites: Mathematics G008 or Mathematics Placement Assessment
This course is equivalent to a first-year high school algebra course. The topics covered include properties of real numbers, simplifying polynomial, rational, and radical expressions, and solving linear, quadratic, rational, and radical equations in one variable. The rectangular coordinate system is covered including graphing linear equations in two variables and solving systems of linear equations in two variables. Applications of mathematical concepts are incorporated throughout the course. This course is taught in a combined large lecture and laboratory format. Lecture & lab. Letter grade only.
