All 16-19 year olds on full-time programmes will be required to retake GCSE English and Maths or to undertake Functional Skills, if they have not already attained the equivalent of a GCSE grade C in these subjects, every year of their course, until they complete their studies.
The course is suitable for those in: architecture, building services, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, production engineering and all those wishing to extend their AutoCAD qualifications.
This is a follow-on course to the 2-D Drawing and Design course and is also suitable for students with substantial experience using AutoCAD.
Highly experienced tutors from industry delivering teaching using purpose-built facilities with the latest industry standard autoCAD software.
The course is essentially hands-on each with student using a work station which reflects closely those presently used in industry.
You should have achieved a Computer-Aided Design 2D Level 3 qualification, or be able to evidence that you have substantial experience in using AutoCAD.
Further CAD or construction courses at the College or elsewhere.
Access to a computer capable of running AutoCAD would be an advantage as free educational version of software can be made available for external study.
