What you'll learn in this blueprint reading training:

This introductory course visits the development of blueprints within the construction industry, and shows the student what to expect in a contemporary construction drawing set, and how to understand scale and symbols in drawings.

The word "blueprint" makes us think of white line drawings on a deep blue background showing beautiful old buildings, or ships, or historic city plans. There is hands-on experience with drawing simple scaled drawings. The later lessons in this course review the place of CADD and more advanced 3-D and intelligent building modeling as "blueprints" morph in the world of e-technology.

Note: Classroom location listings are also posted outside the CAPS office and the lobby of the 17 Lexington Avenue building.

Students MUST submit a detailed written request to withdraw from a course, which CourseHorse will then forward on to the school. The request must state the reason of cancellation.

Refunds or credits are available: Full refund or credit if request to withdraw is made 3 business days before the first class session. 50% refund or credit if request to withdraw is made before the second class session. After the second class session no refunds or credits will be granted.

No refunds or credits will be issued for classes that meet four sessions or fewer. Classes include seminars, intensives and workshops.

All refunds will have a $25 processing fee deducted from the course refund as well as a $20 registration fee ($45 total).

When Baruch College cancels a course, refunds are made automatically.


Students who wish to withdraw from a course must notify the CAPS Office in writing. Failure to complete a course, ceasing to attend class, notifying the instructor of your desire to withdraw, or general dissatisfaction with a course does not constitute a withdrawal and does not entitle you to a refund. Instructors are not permitted OR able to process withdrawals, transfers or refunds.


If a student misses a session, the department unfortunately does not authorize the student to make up that missed session in another section. If the instructor informs the student to visit another section of his class, then that is between the student and the instructor.

Question from anonymous
Does this class teach you how to read plumbing blueprints
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse Staff
Hello, there! The class teaches students how to read all the drawings that go into a construction set. Most of the time is spent on architectural drawings; we have a specific part session on a commercial sprinkler/plumbing drawing. The intent of the course is to teach the general understanding of how to read all drawings, including structural, HVAC, electrical, sprinkler, plumbing as well as architectural. Hope this answers your question!
Question from Anonymous
What did you learn from this class?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse Staff
Hi! As per the syllabus: Learning Objectives: This course tracks the history of blueprints from early times through to today, and into the near future with the advent of computers changing the nature of the construction project coordination workplace.

Amazing experience . Learned a lot
The Future of Blueprint Reading
Reviewed by Anonymous on 4/19/2018
I feel that we didn’t focus on reading blueprints. The professor focused more on the history of blueprints. We got to see an actual (real) blueprint on session 6. Took these sessions twice a week and we would take an open book quiz once a week go over what we learned the previous session and talk about a couple of other things, such as abbreviations, symbols, BIM & CADD. I did learn how to use a scale and learned a couple of things about the history and what programs are being used as of today to build but that’s all. Professor was nice but I just wished we would’ve focused more on the main purpose.
