Computer Aided Drafting and Design
Our program trains you to make detailed, accurate specifications for use in manufacturing and construction.
What is Computer Aided Drafting and Design?
Do you have an idea that you want to produce? Are you meticulous and detail oriented? Then you have the right skills to be a design drafter. Drafting is a graphic language used by industry to communicate ideas and plans from the creative design stage through production. A computer aided drafter and designer is a technical specialist with broad-based skills for mechanical, parametric modeling, civil, architectural (and Building Information Modeling) and manufacturing fields. The drafter is a skilled technician with a thorough understanding of the graphic language and is an indispensable contributor to the engineering design team.
Computer-Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) utilizes two- and three-dimensional modeling with conventional methods of graphic communication to solve basic design-related problems. Students will be exposed to both theory and laboratory projects as they learn to create a variety of drawings. Specific skills taught include, but are not limited to: lettering, geometric construction, orthographic projections, dimensioning and tolerancing, technical processes, and various discipline drawings and media.
