The primary objective of this class is to broadly cover the subject of structural steel drafting, emphasizing the process of preparing structural steel design and fabrication drawings for commercial building applications. To that end, the student is introduced to a wide variety of practical drafting examples and assignments that structural steel design or detail drafters might encounter in an on-the-job situation. Job responsibilities of the major players in the structural steel design and drafting field are fully discussed. The design of beams, columns and connections are also discussed so the student is conversant in the terminology and aware of the design process. (S, O).
