The objective of AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT Introduction Course is to enable students to create a basic 2D drawing in the AutoCAD software. Even at this fundamental level, the AutoCAD software is one of the most sophisticated computer applications that you are likely to encounter. Therefore learning to use it can be challenging. This course can be extended with the addition of the AutoCAD Intermediate Course.
