The mission of the Computer Aided Design Technology (CAD) Program is to teach individuals the correct procedures, skills and attitudes necessary to become successfully employed in today’s modern technological field of CAD; to upgrade or update skills, procedures and attitudes of students presently employed; and to retrain displaced workers. The goal is to teach modern engineering, industrial, and architectural practices to the student so that he/she may become a qualified draftsperson. Students learn to develop clear, complete, and accurate working detail drawings using rough sketches, specifications, codes, and software. The basic program provides instruction in drafting techniques, sketching, lettering, CAD, solid modeling, and 3D printing. Students become skilled in the utilization of equipment used in industry.
