Upon completion of the course, the students will:
1.  Define how the AutoCAD program is structured, including its
   adaptability to various construction/industrial situations.
2.  Identify and use proper construction and positioning commands
   necessary for industry related layout work and geometric
   constructions.
3.  Demonstrate proficiency using dimensioning variables within the
   program.
4.  Demonstrate how to set-up and execute isometric drawings.
5.  Demonstrate proficiency using appropriate set-up procedures and
   commands to construct 3-dimensional models and renderings
6.  Customize the AutoCad interface by creating and editing menu files.
7.  Produce a site plan, floor plan, 3D model and exterior elevations
   for a small structure and produce detailed parts and assembly
   drawings for a machine trades-oriented project.
