COMPUTER-AIDED DRAFTING
TECHNOLOGY
The Computer-Aided Drafting (CAD) Technology program
prepares graduates for positions as entry-level CAD operators in
a wide range of manufacturing and engineering industries. Skills
acquired from this program of study will allow students to become
an integral part of product design and the manufacturing of those
products. Graduates will apply specialized knowledge and skills
utilizing state-of-the-art CAD software to think critically, to solve
problems, and to effectively communicate with colleagues and
supervisors in today's ever-changing work environment.
From preliminary drawings and sketches, to parametric design,
to animated assemblies, graduates will learn how to simplify,
enhance and streamline the manufacturing and engineering
processes utilizing CAD. Students acquire comprehensive skills in
the following technical areas: fundamentals of drafting, technical
drawing, process pipe drafting, processes of manufacturing,
geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T), metals
fabrication drafting, and power transmission. Students' CAD
skills are developed with a comprehensive exposure to the latest
software releases of AutoCAD®, Autodesk Inventor®, SolidWorks®,
and Pro/Engineer®.
Upon completion of the program, graduates will find various
employment opportunities in the following fields:
*
*
*
*
*

CAD operator
Cost estimator
Drafting manager
Drafting supervisor
Mechanical detailer

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES:
A graduate of this program will be able to do the following:
* Produce working drawings such as detail, subassembly, and
full-assembly drawings utilizing manual, freehand, and
computer-aided drafting techniques.
* Recognize and apply the ASME Y14.5 guidelines in the
creation of mechanical working drawings.
* Apply industrial standards to the creation of working
drawings of sheet-metal components, welded assemblies,
electronics drafting, piping systems, and power transmission
components.
* Identify and understand basic manufacturing processes as
they relate to the dimensioning of working drawings.
* Demonstrate an ability to work independently and to apply
interpersonal and technical skills to solve problems as a
member of a multi-disciplinary team.
* Demonstrate skills and proficiency in multiple 2D and 3D
solid modeling CAD software packages.
