​Tec‐Voc’s Design Drafting program prepares students for careers and college or university training in Drafting, ​Engineering, Manufacturing, Architecture and Interior Design.
Students are exposed to drafting and design practices used in today’s industries using the latest “Computer Assisted Design Drafting” (CADD) software.

Essential Skills:  The drafting, engineering, and architectural professions seek people with: positive attitudes, skills in problem solving and design, math, literacy, communication, team work and computers.

Students have the opportunity to develop these skills in Design Drafting at Tec‐Voc.
Grade 10 (2 Credits) DD000V20
Architectural design and drafting:
  • Students design and create a 3D computer model of a cottage
  • Students produce floor plan and elevation drawings, and a photo realistic image of their cottage design using AutoCAD software
Engineering design and drafting:
  • Students use AutoCAD software when designing and drawing everyday objects
  • Students compete in the Skills Manitoba 2D AutoCAD competition

Grade 10 Optional Course (1 Credit) DFTV2S
Students will be introduced to architectural and engineering design drafting practices. Students will use the design process to design and create  a     computer model of a cottage and gain an understanding of interior design and small house construction processes. Students will produce printed  floor plans, exterior and interior views of their design and photo quality rendered images using AutoCAD and nXt Render software. No prerequisites required.
