VAE 103 Blueprint Sketching & Interpretation

    VAE 103 meets PSLO2 at I and D levels because of the (CSLO1), introduces the use of common drafting tools to produce coherent construction drawings while (CSLO2), students actually use scale measurements to draw their drawing projects. VAE 103 meets PSLO3 at the D level because of the (CSLOs1 & 2), students are drawing their drawing projects using the necessary skills and drafting tools. VAE 103 meets PSLO4 at I, D, and M levels because of the (CSLOs2-6), students were introduced to set of plans-architectural symbols, electrical and plumbing symbols and basic blueprint terms and components. They learn how to read blueprints of structures already built.

VCT 153 meets PSLO4 at I &D levels because of the (CSLO7), students will be able to show their abilities on how to build a project like a bench from a working drawing or plan. VCT 153 meets PSLO5 at I, D, and M levels because of the (CSLOs1,3,4,5,6,7), students will be introduced to different grades of lumbers and their usages. They will build a table from a blueprint or sketch with proper land and power tools. While building the table students will apply all safety precautions and regulations. They will also be the ones to estimate the number of materials to be used.

 

VCT 163 Concrete Form Construction

    VCT 163 meets PSLO2 at I and D levels because of the (CSLOs2-7), it will be the first time students will learn what a footing of a structure is. The will fix simple forms or partial forms of piers and columns, solid wall, window and door openings, steps/stairs, and flat concrete roofs by using all needed hand and power tools. VCT 163 meets PSLO3 at I, D, and M levels because of the (CSLOs1-7), students will lay out the building lines for a small size build from a construction drawing. They will identify what kind of footing, piers and columns, walls, roof, and stairs to be used on the structure. VCT 163 meets PSLO4 at D and M levels since the (CSLOs1,2,3,6,7), students will be working from the blueprint to find out all the necessary information needed to complete a project. They will mainly practicing on how to read a set of blueprints properly and accurately. VCT 163 meets PSLO5 at D level because of the (CSLOs4&5), students will be familiar in the steps needed to make a solid wall form how to fix window and door openings forms. They will be able to pick out what kind of hand and power tools needed for each assign task.

 

VCT 173 Rough Framing and Exterior

    VCT 173 meets PSLO2 at D & M levels because of the (CSLOs6&7), students will already be familiar with the use of most hand and power tools from previous courses. They will learn few tools needed to do rough construction. They will be mastering the use of hammers, hand saws, tape measures, squares, chisels, and etc… VCT 173 meets PSLO3 at D level because of the (CSLO7), students will have experience in build floor, walls, ceilings, and roof of a simple house after completing this course. VCT 173 meets PSLO4 at I & D levels because of the (CSLOs1-5&7), students will build floor, walls, ceilings, and roof frames from a construction drawing. Students will build partial of these frame systems mentioned above, not complete systems. But if there is a chance to build a small house, they can build it with the supervision of the instructor. VCT 173 meets PSLO5 at D & M levels because of the (CSLOs1-5&7), students have the hands-on experience in building partial floor systems, wall systems, ceiling systems, and roof systems.

They will be the ones to handle materials that will be purchase from vendors. They will stack or pile lumbers and plywood in a proper form or way. VCE 195 meets PSLO4 at I & D levels because of the (CSLOs2-7), students will be introduced to pre-cast and pre-stressed concrete constructions. They will be working from blueprints to identify what kind or size of steel used on I-beams, trusses, and posts.
