DRAFTING AND DESIGN

(DDT)

MISSION: The mission of the Drafting and Design program is to prepare students as drafting technicians using state-of-the art software and positioning them to become members of successful design and production teams while encouraging them to maintain competence through continuing education opportunities.

Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) technicians serve as the critical link between an engineer and the manufacturer. As members of design and production teams, drafting technicians contribute the detail and layout drafting, design, and development skills necessary for production. The technician's career can move into advanced design, management, manufacturing, or estimating. The Associate Degree program begins with an introduction to computers and basic drafting skills. Advanced students have the opportunity to study manufacturing process, Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), solids modeling, architectural, mechanical, structural, 3D graphics and animation, technical illustration and rapid prototyping.

 

Unique to the program is the fact that within the department, students go from conception to a 3D model.  This program consists of one short certificate, one certificate, and one A.A.S degree.
