Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD)

If you’ve got the inclination to draw, design, problem-solve and create order, think about a career in Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD). 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.

A flexible curriculum allows you to specialize in many different types of computer aided design. Our laboratories contain PC and Sun workstations along with printers, plotters and overhead teaching devices.

My education has given me the basic skills needed to keep up with the growing and fast pace of CADD and design technology. The most important thing that I learned was the standard of leadership that included improving my administrative and technology skills in addition to good communication and planning skills.” Read Edward's story.
