"The design considerations taught in Drafting/CAD are key principles that make your students stand out."
Theodore Blizinski, Manager Bechtel Marine Propulsion Corporation (BMPC)
Program Advantages: 

Students tackle authentic industrial problems in a real-life industrial setting. Often, there are actual design problems in the community to address or on-campus projects that need help from Drafting/CAD. With this hands-on training, students not only understand the principles but can also put their skills to work for an employer from day one.

Professional Outlook: 

Starting salaries range from $32,000 - $54,000* depending on area. Full benefits including health, dental, and vision with matching employer retirement. Students can get multiple job offers and many companies come to us when recruiting due to the excellent experience they receive.

*Based on job offers recent grads are receiving.
