Why Computer-Aided Design?


This program prepares students for a career in Architecture and/or Mechanical Engineering. Through design projects, students learn to prepare various architectural drawings of structures and components of mechanical equipment systems derived from layouts and sketches. Students will transform initial designs into working drawings adhering to drafting standards set forth by the American Institute of Architects (AIA), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

The Computer Aided Design A.S. (422.2) technology program prepares students to create complete, concise and accurate computer-based engineering communications. Through multiple projects, students become skilled in solving both two-dimensional and three-dimensional technical problems involving parametric and solid modeling using modern CAD programs.
