CAD 187 HVAC/Pipe CAD Design (2.5)
Credit, Degree Applicable
HVAC and Piping system design theory. Introduction to computer generated documents to specify HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) and piping systems layout and details. This course will have a mechanical design emphasis, introducing terms and component equipment common to these systems. Emphasis will be placed on the standards used for process pipe and HVAC industry drawings. Design theory will include the determination of equipment sizes.
Offered Spring semesters
