Brighton College - Vancouver Campus: Design Area of Study

Computer Aided Design with AutoCAD w/practicum Certificate - Certificate


Students taking this certificate will be trained to use 2D and 3D AutoCAD drawing, and management tools commonly used in Engineering and Design. Drawing skills for employment in the engineering and construction industries will be emphasized. Students will gain a solid foundation on AutoCAD and, depending on the elective chosen, AutoDesk Architectural Desktop, AutoDesk Inventor. All of these are used in engineering and public works. Students will also acquire skills in design areas such as desktop publishing, computer graphics and web design.

This 17-week certificate program is fully instructor-led, allowing students to navigate quickly through engineering and design theory and AutoCAD software. The curriculum includes experiential lectures and workshops facilitated by specialized industry experts. All instructors have relevant designations and at least 5 years experience in the industry.

This program is 13 weeks duration:
20 hours/week lecture and discussion and 4 week optional program (17 weeks)

The Computer Aided Design and Drafting Certificate program consists of 6 core courses focusing on the application of AutoCAD to create engineering and architectural drawings. Students will learn to use high level computer aided design techniques and the most updated parametric design approach to create 2-dimensional drawings as well as 3-dimensional models.

AUT 100, 75 Hours, 3 Weeks | AutoCAD Fundamentals
This course will give students an introduction and overview focusing on Computer Aided Design and drafting using AutoCAD on a PC platform. Explore the use of computer-aided design in the profession. Utilizing high-end computer tools, students will gain knowledge in basic AutoCAD settings and acquire some fundamental 2 dimensional technical drawing skills.

AUT 150, 75 Hours, 3 Weeks | AutoCAD Advanced
This course introduces and emphasizes AutoCAD three-dimensional drawing concepts and model creation settings. The application of isometric assembly, three-dimensional user defined coordinate system, surface modeling, 3D object creation / editing and multiple viewport presentation and viewing technique will be the focus. Students will acquire the knowledge in the concept of forming and editing composite solid models in spatial orientation. Rendering technique and multiple viewport presenta?tion for solid models will also be emphasized in this course.

CCT 100, 50 Hours, 2 Weeks | Building Code
This course will give students a thorough understanding of the Canadian building law and the British Columbia Building Code. Major topics include the study of the zoning, all aspects of residential and commercial building construction standards, design specifications, occupant safety and professional practice which may affect the design and construction of the building. Occupational health and safety in local workplace will also be emphasized in this course.

AUT 050, 25 Hours, 1 Week | Engineering Graphics
This course introduces students to the concepts and principles of engineering graphics, including such topics as Principles of Projection, Sketching, Sectioning, Dimensioning, Engineering Drawings and Design, Visualization, Intersection and Development, and Presenting Technical Information.

AUT 310, 75 Hours, 3 Weeks | Revit Architecture
This course is a powerful parametric Building Information Modeling (BIM) program that works the way Architects think. From Preliminary Design through Design Development, and into Construction Documents, the program streamlines the design process with a central 3D model. Students use Revit? Architecture to learn about building information modeling and the tools for parametric building design and documentation. Students begin the course by learning the fundamental features of Revit Architecture, and then progressing through schematic design and construction documentation, before finishing with design visualization.

AUT 650, 25 Hours, 1 Weeks | Portfolio Development
This course will give the students the opportunity to prepare a portfolio for presentation purposes. Students will use various computer aided design software to print architectural, civil engineering, as well as mechanical working drawings. The portfolio will also include resumes and cover letters for job.

AUT 700, 160 Hours, 4 Weeks | Work Experience/Practicum
Students will be at various small and mid-sized engineering / design businesses within the lower mainland. The purpose of this time is to apply the theory and skills learnt throughout the program and observe professionals in practical situations. The students will also acquire situational-specific skills and identify areas that may need to be developed further. Students receive feedback and evaluation of their performance and gain valuable contacts in this diverse field.
