ARCHITECTURAL DRAUGHTING | NATIONAL CERTIFICATE

The Architectural CAD Draughting qualification will teach the student to operate various CAD software applications, which is a career on its own and focuses on architectural draughting (drawing of building plans). It will enable the learner to draught via 2D and 3D CAD software, the technical drawings of building structures and the complete presentation and construction drawings for submission to the local municipality. The role of an Architectural Draughtsperson is to prepare detailed drawings of architectural designs and plans for buildings and structures according to specifications provided by the architect, client and other project team members. Draughting is an exciting and innovative career. In the past, draughting was performed by hand on a drawing board, but nowadays, computers and software make life much easier for everyone.

After year 1 you will be able to draw a complete residential house plan on CAD Software in 2D & 3D. You will also be involved with many exciting tasks, projects, design competitions, site visits & outdoor activities.
