3D modeling and design

Bohlen Tech Center only 

From residential to commercial design with imagination as the only limit. Program includes instruction in three-dimensional modeling of structures, statues, parks, skateboards, radios, trucks, bridges, solar farms, signs, city blocks and more. Students will develop the concept and go through design phases before construction begins. This hands-on course provides the skills and work ethic to find success as an entry-level draftsman/CADD operator in the many fields of engineering or to continuing with education at the college level.

This is a two year, half day program for high school juniors and seniors. Students will have the opportunity to earn up to four credits per year in CTE or a combination of CTE and integrated academic credit for career and financial management, math and English.

Sample units of study include residential construction methods, 3-D printing, architectural model building, blueprint reading and blueprint standards, Autodesk Inventor, Solid Works (3-D assembly), Sketch-Up (3-D rendering), Autodesk Revit (architecture) and surveying (basic terminology and plotting).

Career opportunities include architecture drafting, mechanical drafting, civil designer, electrical designer, junior engineer and Auto CAD technician.

We have articulation agreements with Alfred State, Bryant and Stratton, Pennsylvania College of Technology and SUNY Delhi.
