This virtual training course, part of Minnesota LTAP’s new Roadway Design Using AutoCAD and Civil 3D training series, teaches students how to use computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) software to design a simple county highway.
During the course, each student will complete the layout of a two-lane roadway. Students will also learn how to plot to scale in layout space. Real survey data for a two-lane county road will be used, and students will design their road using current Minnesota Department of Transportation standards and guidelines.
The course starts with an instructor-led live orientation. Then, each week of the course will include a two-hour prerecorded lecture and self-paced classroom lesson as well as a live, instructor-led discussion.
This training will provide an introduction to Civil 3D, the civil CADD software. Before taking this course, students should have a basic knowledge of AutoCAD software and an existing understanding of road design principles and practices.
Classes begin Feb. 14. and run through April 28. Cost is $150. Learn more and register.
