Computer Aided Design Technology


The Computer Aided Design Technology program provides training for individuals who wish to acquire the skills, knowledge, and attitudes necessary to become successfully employed in today’s modern field of Drafting and Computer Aided Design.

The Computer Aided Design Technology program provides an introduction to the diverse fields of mechanical drafting and AEC (architectural, engineering, and construction). These individualized, competency-based courses are taught in a lab environment and include real-world projects.

Students learn to prepare working drawings and plans by use of Computer-Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) software. They will be introduced to computer-aided additive manufacturing processes in which they will design, create, and 3D print physical objects they have modeled. CADD and 3D printing are tools used by drafters, designers and engineers in today's technological world.
