Students use graphic language for product design and technical illustration. They increase their understanding of drawing techniques learned in the Technical Drawing and Design (8435/8434), Engineering Drawing and Design (8159) and Architectural Drawing and Design (8437/8492). Students research design-related fields while identifying the role of advanced drawing and design in manufacturing and construction industry processes. They apply the design process, analyze design solutions, reverse engineer products, create 3D solid models using computer-aided design (CAD), construct physical models, and create multimedia presentations of finished designs. Students will complete a work portfolio based on a chosen graphic project.

Contextual instruction and student participation in co-curricular career and technical student organization (CTSO) activities will develop leadership, interpersonal, and career skills. High-quality work-based learning (HQWBL) will provide experiential learning opportunities related to students' career goals and/or interests, integrated with instruction, and performed in partnership with local businesses and organizations.
