The drafting/CAD (computer-aided drafting) program provides students with the CAD skills and knowledge to qualify for entry-level positions in a wide variety of industries.
During the first year, students focus on gaining a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of CAD drafting, tolerancing, manufacturing processes, and mathematics.
Entrance Requirements & Recommendations:
Students are required to earn a grade of "C" or higher in technical calculations I and II (DCAD 1053 & DCAD 2063) to be eligible for graduation. (Articulation is available in this area.) Articulation agreements are also available for 2805 drafting for residential construction.
The CAD/CAM technology program (computer-aided design/drafting - computer-aided manufacturing) prepares the graduate for a number of opportunities in the engineering and manufacturing-related fields. This program develops skills in the areas of design/drafting (2D CAD and 3D solid modeling) and automation/robotics. Graduates will become proficient with industry-standard software including AutoCAD, Pro/ENGINEER, and Mastercam.
