Engineering Technology:CAD

Designing Your Career From the Ground Up

Before anything is constructed, manufactured or built, it’s drafted with Computer Aided Drafting (CAD)! Drafters create the CAD drawings for everything around us.

Our program will help you develop the knowledge and techniques used in the creation of technical work skills and learn to use technology to solve typical engineering-related problems. We offer an associate’s degree so you’re qualified for higher-level positions and several certificates that are a great option if you have a degree in another area.
