  • Drafting equipment can be purchased at Red River College in the “Bookzone” bookstore.
  • You can also obtain supplies at Lewis Instruments on Erin Street, or at The U of M Bookstore. Staples or Office Depot may also carry some of the pieces.
  • If you decide to purchase a full drafting kit instead of the component parts, make sure that you tell the Bookzone staff that you want the Civil Engineering Technology drafting kit.  That is the same equipment used by the first year students in the Civil Engineering Technology program.
  • The Mechanical Engineering drafting kit looks similar, but it is missing some key components that you will require, and it will provide some other components that you will not use in this course. If you are sold the wrong kit by mistake, take it back with your bill and show the clerk this list.

Entrance Requirements

Good math skills and hand dexterity.
