  • Design plans using computer-aided design (CAD) software
  • Work from rough sketches and specifications created by engineers and architects
  • Design products with engineering and manufacturing techniques
  • Add details to architectural plans from their knowledge of building techniques
  • Specify dimensions, materials, and procedures for new products
  • Work under the supervision of engineers or architects

What will I learn?

Upon completion of this program, Students will be able to do the following:

  1. The graduate will have demonstrated an intermediate level of competency with computer applications common to modern industry, including 2-dimensional computer aided drafting software.
  2. The graduate will have demonstrated a thorough understanding of industrial safety codes and practices necessary to function safely in an industrial environment.
  3. The graduate will have demonstrated a thorough understanding of the various materials used to manufacture products, along with the various manufacturing processes used to convert these materials into finished goods.
  4. The graduate will have demonstrated the ability to work effectively in a team-based environment.

3Denotes courses for Mechanical Drafting Technical Certificate

What is Civil Technology Technical?

Drafters use software to convert the designs of engineers and architects into technical drawings. Most workers specialize in architectural, civil, electrical, or mechanical drafting and use technical drawings to help design everything from microchips to skyscrapers.  Drafters typically need specialized training, which can be accomplished through a technical program that leads to a certificate or an associate’s degree in drafting.

Many drafters are referred to as CAD operators. Using CAD systems, drafters create and store technical drawings digitally. These drawings contain information on how to build a structure or machine, the dimensions of the project, and what materials are needed to complete the project. Civil drafters prepare topographical maps used in construction and civil engineering projects, such as highways, bridges, and flood-control projects.

What will I learn?

Upon completion of this program, Students will be able to do the following:

  1. The graduate will have demonstrated an intermediate level of competency with computer applications common to modern industry, including 2-dimensional computer aided drafting software.

What is Mechanical Drafting Technical?

Drafters use software to convert the designs of engineers and architects into technical drawings. Most workers specialize in architectural, civil, electrical, or mechanical drafting and use technical drawings to help design everything from microchips to skyscrapers.  Drafters typically need specialized training, which can be accomplished through a technical program that leads to a certificate or an associate’s degree in drafting.

Mechanical drafters prepare layouts that show the details for a wide variety of machinery and mechanical tools and devices, such as medical equipment. These layouts indicate dimensions, fastening methods, and other requirements needed for assembly. Mechanical drafters sometimes create production molds.  Many drafters are referred to as CAD operators. Using CAD systems, drafters create and store technical drawings digitally. These drawings contain information on how to build a structure or machine, the dimensions of the project, and what materials are needed to complete the project.
