Computer-Aided Drafting (CRT.CAD)

Computer-Aided Drafting (CAD), also called computer- aided design, has evolved from an experimental process to a highly efficient tool in the past 20 years. CAD not only replaces most manual drafting, but can also be used for generating bills of materials, doing computerized structural analysis and controlling manufacturing machines. Several companies in the local area and worldwide, both large and small, utilize CAD for a variety of purposes. Computer-aided drafting is a unique application of computer graphics. The CAD draftsman can easily produce and modify plans, blueprints, designs, technical illustrations and schematics. Once a student completes the CAD certificate program, he or she will not only know how to operate a CAD system, but also how to set-up, customize and troubleshoot it. The many uses of CAD have opened many career opportunities in this exciting high-tech field. As a stand-alone certificate, the graduate can expect to find employment as a CAD draftsman or CAD operator. Those earning an associate in applied science degree can complete a few additional courses and earn a CAD certificate. The CAD certificate can greatly increase the opportunities for a good paying job in such fields as manufacturing, civil engineering, electronics or building construction. Students planning to continue their education can use this certificate as the beginning of a degree in similar fields. Certificate also available online. Consult Advisor.

Program requirements may change over time. Specific degree/graduation requirements are determined by a degree audit.
