To stay competitive, interior design and architecture professionals need proficiency in computer-aided drafting (CAD) skills for drafting and design layouts. Autodesk's AutoCAD and AutoCAD Architecture, along with other CAD programs like Google's SketchUp, have become industry standard. Through lectures, demonstrations and hands-on experience, students learn to use these visualization and productivity software tools to take a project from initial design to a finished two-dimensional plot. Dimensioning, standard drafting and commonly used detailing procedures are followed. Note: It is recommended that students complete the prerequisite of "Drafting + Rendering for Interiors" or have equivalent experience before registering for this course.
