Course materials


No textbooks required


Computer Program: We will be using the computer program, AutoCAD for most of the term.  There is a free student license on the AutoDesk website.  The details on how to get this program will be provided at the beginning of the term.   

Computer Requirements: To run AutoCAD, students must have access to a computer that meets minimum requirements. The hardware requirements to run AutoCAD can be found at this link: knowledge.autodesk.com/support/autocad/troubleshooting/caas/sfdcarticles/sfdcarticles/System-requirements-for-AutoCAD-2020-including-Specialized-Toolsets.html

AutoCAD generally functions best in Microsoft Windows.  However, if you don't have access to a computer that uses Windows, a Mac computer will work.  

Instructor comments:

Course Structure: The first week of the course we will meet both Tuesday and Thursday.  The following weeks of the term we will have asynchronous work on Tuesdays and will have a synchronous session on Thursdays.

Textbook: The textbook listed through the bookstore is recommended, but not required.  This course will generally taught without the use of a textbook, the recommended textbook could be used as an additional resource for you.  I will also share an open source (free) textbook during the beginning of the term.
