Drafting (I & II) is designed to give students technical knowledge and help them develop manual skills in the use of drafting for industrial, manufacturing, and construction use. Drafting I has been divided into one hour classes in an effort to allow more students to explore this field. They are listed as "Concepts of Drafting" and "Intermediate Drafting". The skills they obtain will enable them to enter occupations in machine drafting as well prepare them to continue their training in related occupations such as engineering or architecture.
