AEC 80 - Basic Manual Drafting
A first course in technical drawing designed primarily for students planning to enroll in regular-program Architectural, Engineering and CAD Technologies courses upon completion of this course, but open to others as well.

Similar to AEC 81, but manual drafting tools are used, and the course is an internet course.
