The Computer-aided Drafting and Design (CADD) Technology degree prepares the student for employment in the modern CADD environment. Students are skilled in preparing complete, concise and accurate computer-based engineering communications.
Students will function as a member of the engineering team demonstrating professionalism, responsibility and confidence. Through multiple projects, students are skilled in solving both two-dimensional and three-dimensional technical problems involving parametric and solid modeling using modern CADD programs.
Upon successful completion of the program, the graduate will:
Be proficient with basic and advanced two-dimensional and three-dimensional CAD commands to produce engineering drawings.
Generate an engineering drawing showing the object in its completed condition containing all the necessary information, notes and dimensioning to bring it to that final state.
Apply geometric construction techniques in the construction of technical drawings.
Apply descriptive geometry methods to the solution of spatial problems.
Prepare engineering drawings using two-dimensional and three-dimensional CAD software in a professional manner using knowledge of drafting room practices and techniques.
