The Computer-Aided Design (CAD) curriculum provides students both instruction and experience on both workstation and PC based CAD. Students are taught how to use the computer as a tool for tasks such as 2-D drafting, 3-D modeling and simple CAD related programming.
In addition, students learn advanced techniques such as solving design problems, attribute management and symbol library creation and usage. Courses include introductory drafting and electrical, mechanical and architectural applications. Graduates of the program are qualified as CAD operators and technologists and/or can continue their education in the university environment.
This program has been articulated with some area high schools. Recent high school graduates may have earned credit in this program through high school coursework. Refer to Dual Credit for High School Courses for more information.
