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.
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.
