The Computer-Aided Drafting certificate program provides students with the background required to obtain entry-level employment in the computer-aided drafting (CAD) field. Students will learn to create complex mechanical and architectural drawings using industry-standard AutoCAD software. Most courses within this program can be used in the Information Technology A.A.S. program of study.
Graduates of the Computer-Aided Drafting Certificate will be able to:
Use the AutoCAD command prompt and menus to create and edit complete two-dimensional AutoCAD drawings that use multiple layers and dimensioning techniques
Use Appropriate CAD software to create three-dimensional drawings using wireframe and solid models
Produce a complete set of working drawings after taking a set of initial measurements for a complex mechanical part or building
