The Mechanical and Architectural Design CAD Lab is a drop-in center where Tutors assist students who are enrolled in architecture and engineering programs. Students may come into the lab and do their Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) homework. Should you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Mechanical and Architectural Design / CAD Lab shares a space with the ATC Tutorial and Open Computer Lab in the Wisner-Bottrall Applied Technology Center in room 215.
