    Successful completion of this course satisfies the NYS graduation requirement of one credit in Art/Music.

    An introductory course, focusing on utilizing the design process to solve technical problems with 2 dimensional drawing techniques and 3 dimensional modeling capabilities.  DDP Tech has been designed to replace the traditional CAD class, and offers the skills developed in the Engineering DDP course for students interested in 3-D modeling, but not necessarily in the pre-engineering program (PLTW).  

    Upon successful  completion of Tech DDP,  an interested and competent student, with the instructors permission, may challenge the Honors DDP course exam in order to track into the PLTW Pre-engineering CIM class the following year.
