Computer Aided Design

Program Description

Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CAD) program is a technical, hands-on, visual curriculum for students who like drawing, creating and designing. Utilizing advanced computer graphics, students will draw 2D and 3D objects while using extremely powerful and sophisticated software. Each student will have the opportunity to choose a pathway along the ARCHITECTURE or the MECHANICAL DESIGN curriculum. The course features 3D modeling programs such as Inventor, AutoCAD and Architectural Revit. Knowledge gained within the CAD program curriculum will help prepare you for a well-paying, high demand career in  architecture and in all areas of engineering. There are also opportunities in interior design. Students will finish this program with entry level job skills. Students in the CAD Program will be setting a good foundation to move onto higher level education. The Education and Technology Center has articulation agreements with many colleges and universities enabling students to gain college credits for completing these courses.
