Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD)

COMPUTER-AIDED DRAFTING AND DESIGN CERTIFICATE
 
Mission Statement
The Computer-Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) Certificate program is intended to provide students with marketable skills in approximately three (3) trimesters. There is an ongoing industry demand for individuals certified in computer aided drafting or design. Industry trends indicate that CADD Certification can lead to well-paying immediate full-time or part-time employment, allowing one to concurrently pursue a two-year or four-year degree.
 
Goals
The Computer Aided Drafting and Design Certification Program endeavors to equip students with necessary skills in Math; English; Technical & Engineering Drawings; Computer Aided Design (CAD); and Mechanical, Architectural and Electrical Drawing Applications. These skills prepare students to apply the foundations and skills of this discipline to develop detailed CAD drawings by using existing technology and software knowledgeably, confidently, and effectively.
  • Graduates will be employed in drafting and design-related positions.
  • Graduates will be employed in computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) positions.
  • Graduates will pursue further education in related fields.
