Requisite courses: Take CAD-1160 (Required, Previous).
An introduction to pressure vessel design. Types of vessels and exchangers and sizing criteria will be introduced for petrochemical applications. Vessels will be designed to ASME Section VIII code requirements. Vessel terminology, weld symbols, process control instrumentation, optimum insulation thicknesses, and drawing standards will be applied to the development of a fabrication drawing using dedicated engineering software. Not available for supplemental.
A study of topics related to the design of commercial building methods, materials and planning calculations. Commercial drawings will be prepared using the Building Code, design computations, and a variety of architectural resource materials. An understanding of commercial building plans is gained through the preparation of drawings using 3D design software. Not available for supplemental.

Requisite courses: Take SUR-1180 (Required, Previous). Take EDD-2275L (Required, Concurrent).
An introduction to petrochemical processes typical for natural gas processing including dehydration, refrigeration and amine sweetening. The design process from Process Flow Diagrams (PFDs), to Piping and Instrumentation Drawings (P&IDs), to advanced piping design and layout for a facility will be developed. Piping will be designed to ASME B31.3 code requirements. Dedicated engineering software for 3-dimensional modeling will be used, including section and isometric drawings for spool fabrication. Not available for supplemental.
Requisite courses: Take EDD-2255 (Required, Previous).
An introduction to the fundamental concepts of heat transfer and the application of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and domestic hot water systems to residential and light commercial buildings. A building will be modeled for heat transfer, and cost-benefit analyses will be conducted to determine optimum performance for a specific climate. The concepts of passive solar gain, indoor air quality, and renewable technologies including solar photovoltaic, solar water heating, and ground-source heat pumping will also be developed. Not available for supplemental.
The application of skills learned in prior courses, particularly CAD, survey and fluid mechanics to a variety of civil design and drafting activities. Typical activities will be similar to those encountered in an engineering office and will use industry standard software applications in the preparation of designs and drawings. Emphasis will be placed on meeting appropriate design guidelines and standards. Not available for supplemental.
