Computer Aided Drafting and Design

The Computer Aided Drafting and Design AAS program prepares individuals to apply technical skills and advanced computer software and hardware to the creation of graphic representations and simulations in support of engineering projects. Includes instruction in engineering graphics, two-dimensional and three-dimensional engineering design, solids modeling, engineering animation, rapid prototyping, 3D printing, CNC manufacturing, computer-aided drafting (CAD), computer-aided design (CADD), and AutoCAD techniques.

The CAD Mechanical/Prototyping One-Year Certificate program prepares individuals to apply technical knowledge and skills in the use of three-dimensional (3-D) computer technology to create technical illustrations and models used in manufacturing, design, production, and construction. Includes instruction in 3-D computer-aided design (CAD), 3-D printing, 3-D model design and construction, and 3-D scanning.

The CAD Architectural, Engineering, Civil One-Year Certificate program prepares individuals to apply basic engineering principles and technical skills in support of civil engineers engaged in designing and executing public works projects such as highways, dams, bridges, tunnels and other facilities. Includes instruction in site analysis, structural testing procedures, field and laboratory testing procedures, plan and specification preparation, test equipment operation and maintenance, and report preparation.
