Program Overview

Engineering Graphics and Design ProgramThe Engineering and Design program prepares students to become drafters.  Drafters prepare drawings based on sketches, specifications, and calculations made by engineers, architects, and designers.  These final drawings will contain detailed views of an object, specifications for materials, and other information required to fully carry out the job.  Students in this program use industry specific software to perform lab exercises such as AutoCAD, Inventor, Revit, Solid Edge, and ArcGIS.  Students also have the opportunity to prototype parts with laser cutters and large format printers.

The Engineering and Design program is designed for the professional development of individuals who desire to prepare themselves for employment in fields such as architecture and engineering.  Students are required to participate in third party credentialing activities such as NOCTI as part of this curriculum.
