Drafting is not just a job.
It is a career -- a career with a future!

The Computer-Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) program can help you enter into the field of drafting and design by providing you a flexible, competency-based program of study. Our new self-paced format allows you to create your own schedule, starting with three to four classes at the beginning of the semester. As you master course content, you can start additional courses providing you the opportunity to complete a certificate or degree quickly to get the job of your dreams.

The program is based on the competencies which are common to all drafting and design technicians. Emphasis is on developing the student's critical thinking process, work skills, drafting procedures and techniques and three-dimensional perception and thinking. The CADD program is consistently updating the drafting computer hardware and software to stay abreast of industry standards and trends.
