• Basic Computer-aided Drafting (717.1)


    Also see Computer-aided Drafting and Design Technology (422.1).

    The professional certificate in Basic Computer-aided Drafting is a fast track program designed for the student seeking a career in computer-aided drafting. Graduates may find employment as CAD operators, drafting technicians or engineering aides in technical professions that utilize computer generated engineering drawings and models.

    Graduates can also use the credits earned in the certificate program to transfer into existing two-year associate's degree programs in CAD, drafting and engineering technology.

    Upon completion of this program, graduates will:

    1. Apply the technical skills for employment as a drafter, a CAD drafter or a senior CAD drafter.
    2. Follow established technical specifications to prepare engineering drawings.
    3. Prepare routine drafting projects derived from layouts and sketches.
    4. Create working two-dimensional and three-dimensional CAD drawings for engineering applications.
    5. Construct, edit and annotate feature based parametric models.
