Summary

In our program, you will develop skills in using CADD systems to produce accurate technical drawings.

You will be prepared for entry-level jobs. Plus, you will be able to quickly become familiar with a company's CADD system, technical drawing procedures and products.

About the Field

Those with CADD skills prepare the technical drawings and plans that are used to build everything from manufactured products, such as toys and toasters, to structures, such as buildings and bridges.

These drawings are critical to the production process as they provide visual guidelines, illustrate technical details and specify the dimensions, materials and procedures to be used.

We also offer continuing education programs that do not require you to enroll in credit courses.
