Click here to get your degree Fact SheetOur Drafting and Design Technology program includes two different tracks for students to consider. Whether you plan to complete your studies in two years and go directly into the job market, or whether you plan to complete a bachelor's degree in a related field, our program has the flexibility to help you meet your goals.

Casper College graduates have found that an Associate of applied science degree has prepared them for either track. Many have gone right into the field of drafting, or into allied areas such as architecture, engineering or technology-related industry. Others have chosen to pursue bachelor's degrees to become industrial arts teachers, midlevel managers in manufacturing and engineering firms, and even engineers or architects. Our faculty advisors can help if you have plans to pursue additional education or a professional career in engineering or architecture.

Drafting classGood mathematics and science skills are helpful to any student considering drafting and design. Those without strong skills can benefit from remedial course work offered at the college. Students also can expect to take general education courses such as government, communication, human behavior and cultural environment.

ENTK 1010 Elements of Surveying (2L,3LB,3CR):
The principles of land surveying include distance measurement, elevations and angles. This course includes fundamentals of trigonometry, the necessary review of algebraic principles, and a thorough introduction to the surveying instruments and their use. Lecture material is accompanied by field measurements providing adequate practical experience. Following the course, students should be able to assist with a survey crew or lay out a simple construction site. An introduction to the U.S. public land system and the principles of the GPS system are included.

ENTK 1021 Descriptive Geometry (2L,2LB,3CR):
Emphasis is on the graphic solutions to engineering and design problems. Topics will include: visibility, notation, auxiliary views, true lengths and angles, bearing, grade, intersecting lines, lines on planes, point views, normal views piercing points, intersection of planes, contour mapping, outcrop, cut and fill, revolution of lines, vectors and perspective. Prerequisite: ENTK 1510 or permission of the instructor.

ENTK 1505 Introduction to GIS (2L,4LB,4CR):
An introductory course in geographic information systems (GIS) and an accompanying lab session. (Cross-listed as GEOG 1100.)

ENTK 1510 Drafting I (2L,4LB,4CR):
An introductory course in industrial communications through technical drawing and computer-aided drafting. Topics include, sketching, lettering, plan geometry, multiview and axonometric projections dimensioning using traditional drafting instruments and computer aided drafting equipment.

ENTK 1540 Introduction to GPS (1L,1CR):
Introduction to GPS covers the basic theory and use of recreational and professional global positioning system equipment. Topics covered include satellite triangulation, data gathering and types of data entry, GPS navigation, and export of data to GIS software.

ENTK 1650 Mechanical Drafting & Design (2L,4LB,4CR):
A continuation of the instruction received in ENTK 2510, this is an intermediate mechanical design course focusing on assembly modeling using both top-down and bottomup techniques. Application of design intent on part and assembly models instructs the student to predict how design changes will impact the model. The students learn to integrate weldments, fasteners, sheet metal parts and web based design tools into assemblies. In addition, students realize the importance of file
management tools in assemblies. Prerequisite: ENTK 2510 or permission of instructor.

ENTK 1710 Architecture I (2L,4LB,4CR)[E]:
Designing homes with emphasis on today's residential designs and construction methods. Develop documents for construction purposes using sketching and
computer-aided design techniques. Designs will follow local, state and national code specification. Prerequisite: ENTK 1510 or permission of instructor.

ENTK 1720 Architecture II (2L,4LB,4CR):
Develop documents for architectural presentations and graphics using sketching, various CAD techniques, and building information modeling. Prerequisite:
ENTK 1510, ENTK 1710, or permission of instructor.

ENTK 1750 Commercial Architectural Drafting (2L,4LB,4CR):
Design, planning, and construction documents of existing and new commercial buildings. Topics include construction methods and materials, drawing conventions, the AIA drawing standards, the National CAD Standards, the Uniform Drawing System, and the International Building Code. Prerequisite: ENTK 1510 or permission of instructor.

ENTK 2500 Computer-Aided Drafting I (AutoCad) (1L,2LB,2CR):
CAD I is an introductory course in engineering computer graphics, using computer aided drafting software commonly used by industries in the region. Prerequisite:
Working knowledge of Windows operating system and computer literacy.

ENTK 2505 Computer-Aided Drafting II (AutoCad) (1L,2LB,2CR)[E]:
CAD II is a continuation of CAD I using the AutoCad drawing software. The student will receive training in advanced 2-D drawings, isometric drawings, file maintenance and plotting practice. Prerequisite: ENTK 2500.

ENTK 2510 CAD-3D Modeling (2L,4LB,4CR):
An introductory course in 3D solid modeling. The student will learn basic part and assembly modeling techniques with an emphasis on design intent. Standard 3 view part prints including section, detail and exploded views will be created. Prerequisite: ENTK 1510 or instructor permission.

ENTK 2515 Autodesk Inventor (1L,2LB,2CR):
Autodesk Inventor allows the designer to create almost any type of solid model or assembly. It is a basic to intermediate level mechanical design course and it includes part modeling, assembly, drawing generation, and presentation. The students will also be introduced to the concept of transferring data to and from different electronic media. The course is designed for students who are new to Autodesk Inventor and may not be familiar with any parametric solid modeling. Prerequisite: ENTK 2510, or previous CAD experience with permission of the instructor.

ENTK 2550 Civil Drafting I (2L,4LB,4CR):
This course introduces principles and techniques of civil drafting using AutoDesk’s Land Development Desktop to create engineering maps. This course includes an overview of mapping, surveying, and earthwork. Prerequisite: ENTK 2505, or permission of the instructor.

ENTK 2625 Mechanical Drafting & Design II
This is an advanced mechanical design course focusing on design and marketing tools used with solid modeling of parts and assemblies. These tools aid the designer during the product development phase of a project. Prerequisite: ENTK 1650 or permission of instructor.

ENTK 2975 Independent Study in Drafting (2-6LB,1-3CR) (Max. 3):
