Computer Aided Design, CAD/CADD (Continuing Education)

​​​​​If you’ve got the inclination to draw, design, problem-solve and create order, the Computer Aided Design (CAD)/Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) program is for you!

CAD/CADD is used in a variety of industries:

  • product development
  • architecture
  • graphic design
  • engineering and more

The technology helps designers prepare drawings, specifications, parts lists and other elements using specialized computer programs. You'll learn to prepare the kind of technical drawings used to build everything from manufactured products — such as toys, toasters, industrial machinery and spacecraft — to structures such as houses, office buildings and oil pipelines.

The need has never been greater for workers with these skills. Map out your future today with the Computer Aided Design program.
