cnieto77 ...I think your plan is a good one (to get a degree in "drafting") and add the one piping class to your curriculum. Actually that's how I did it! I have an AA in mechanical drafting, and added the piping class later. The BIG advantage I got was getting a job at a major engineering company that did piping training, and I was able to take advantage of it.
There are differences in mechanical drafting and pipe drafting, but not that much. I'm a design/drafting supervisor now, and when I go thur piping package my team has done (plus other companies) there is a big issue with drafting! Almost everybody can run rings around me on the 3D cad system, but about 65% of all the errors I catch are basic drafting errors! BECAUSE every body has minimal drafting education and a certificate for some 3D piping program. ...We find it's easier to teach someone piping, then getting a 3D piper and try to teach them (good) drafting procedures, not sure why, but it's just the way it is.
PS - IF after you do all this, and you still think your pipe training is lacking, you can go to the other college and just "cherry pick" the piping classes you feel that would be beneficial to your education. Doing classes here and there would be far cheaper then signing up for the whole curriculum. ...Good Luck!
