 Design Drafting Student Work 2014-15




Tec-Voc’s Design Drafting program prepares students for careers, and college or university training, in the Drafting Technologies, Engineering, Manufacturing, Architecture and Interior Design. The primary goal of the program is to prepare students for further education, but some may find employment upon graduation.
The students are exposed to drafting and design practices used in today’s industries using the latest “Computer Assisted Design Drafting” (CADD) software.
The drafting, engineering, and architectural professions seek people with: positive attitudes, with 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.
The course includes:

  • advanced skills using AUTOCAD, AUTODESK ARCHITECTURE and INVENTOR Software
  • •architectural drafting
  • •interior design
  • •time management
  • •machine design
  • •product design for manufacturing
  • •problem solving


Grade 10

(TEDV21) Students are introduced to basic architectural and engineering drafting practices. These courses provide an introduction to basic design. Students will use a design process to design and computer model a cottage, gain an understanding of interior design and small house construction processes. Students also use engineering CADD software when drawing views of objects, dimensioning, reengineering everyday objects, and inventing new ones. Students compete in the Skills Manitoba 2D AutoCAD competition. 2 Credits

Grade 11

(TEDV31) Students are introduced to residential architectural and advanced engineering and manufacturing design drafting. Students’ activities and projects will include:
• architectural design and presentation drawing
• advanced 2D and 3D CADD skills
• working drawings of floor plans and elevations
• model construction
Students’ activities and projects will include:
• engineering design and presentation drawing
• working drawings of machine parts
• advanced 2D and 3D CADD skills
• Skills Manitoba Architectural and Mechanical CADD competitions
• cardboard boat competition
• F1 in Schools competition
4 Credits

Grade 12

(TEDV41) The grade 12 courses offer advanced CADD 2D and 3D drawing and design for engineering, architecture, and manufacturing. Student activities and projects will include:
• completing a set of architectural drawings of their house designs
• advanced manufacturing design, drawing, and construction competitions (F1 race car, hovercraft)
• machine design and reengineering activities
• furniture design
• custom design drafting work for school and community clients
• job preparation and work experience at local industries
• Skills Manitoba Architectural and Mechanical CADD competitions
4 Credits
All drafting courses are taught using industry standard Auto-CAD, Architecture, Inventor, and CATIA CADD softwa re.

Agreement with Red River College

Our agreement with Red River College Civil Engineering Technology allows students to obtain credit for many first year courses.


We are proud to have a 3D printer, which allows students’ 3D designs to be printed in 3D from ABS plastic material.
