Whereas the Introduction to Draughting Course gives students a broad outline of what engineering drawings are and how different structures could be constructed, Architectural Draughting zooms in on the technical drawing of buildings in particular. An Architectural Draughter would thus design building plans - on scale and very detailed - so that building contractors or engineers are able to get the full picture of what needs to be constructed.
This drawing then becomes the "blueprint" of a building according to which quantity surveyors calculate what material is needed, engineers determine how deep foundations should be laid, interior designers plan the layout, etc. Becoming an Architectural Draughter would require a creative mind, an organised and precise work strategy, good work ethics and the ability to work under pressure.
