In High School I took 3 years of drafting... by the time I started College, I had to put the ink and ruler down and learn AutoCAD.

I did manually drafting for about 2 months in high school (to learn perspective mostly.. sort of a crude industrial design lesson), then switched to CAD (matix, followed by autocad 7) on 286 16mhz computers (no hard drives). When I got to college, there was still a little bit of drafting (3d geometry, design class), but when it got down to real engineering we had to use autocad and print our work.
I took this class in high school, too. My dad had all this when I was growing up. He drew up the plans and actually built our house as well. I loved it when he would pull the plans out and show us our new rooms! And I will always remember where my boom box was by the skill saw in the living room when it was bare bones :)
