Drafting, Design, & 3D Modeling Technology

Drafting, Design, & 3D Modeling Technology

[Jeff Melson]

(Associate of Applied Science)

The Drafting, Design and 3D Modeling Technology Program is a broad study that prepares the graduate as a drafter in the fields of architectural, civil, mechanical, and structural drafting. Drafters prepare technical drawings used by workers who build homes, space crafts, industrial machinery, manufactured products, buildings, roads, bridges, subdivisions, and much more. Their drawings show the technical details of the products and structures with exact dimensions, specify materials to be used, procedures to be followed, and other information needed to carry out the job using computer aided drafting (CAD) systems. Instructions will include training in AutoCAD, Revit Architecture (3D), and SolidWorks (3D). Graduates will have the knowledge and technical skills necessary for employment with architectural or engineering firms, planners, manufacturing companies, furniture designers, governmental agencies, wood and metal manufacturers, and other agencies which utilize drafters and technicians. Students successfully completing the program will receive an Associate of Applied Science degree.
