The Engineering CAD Technology program prepares students to translate the ideas, sketches, and specifications of engineers and designers into workable plans which are used in product fabrication. Students learn to use engineering technology in determining exact specifications for new product design or modification, or redesign of present products. The course begins with instruction in basic drafting skills and advances to more complex technological areas. Major emphasis will be on the application and use of computer aided design.
Program outcomes include:
• Design products for manufacture using 2D and 3D standards.
• Apply orthographic CAD design procedures to working drawings.
• Perform advanced CAD software applications.
• Create a capstone design project incorporating advanced CAD and industrial/mechanical applications.
