Computer Assisted Drafting (CAD)
This certificate program develops entry-level skills for individuals interested in using Computer Assisted Drafting (CAD) to produce detailed architectural or schematic drawings based on rough sketches, specifications, and calculations made by scientists, engineers, and designers. CAD software permits easy modification and preparation of designs. Furthermore, it allows a drafter to view a design from various angles not easily achieved with traditional board approaches. AutoCAD software is used in this program. Every course offered in the Computer Assisted Drafting certificate program is offered in the Manufacturing Engineering Technology program. Every graduate of the Manufacturing Engineering Technology program will automatically qualify for a CAD certificate. Students enrolling in this program should plan on spending approximately $60.00 on drafting equipment.
