Computer-Aided Drafting and Design Mapping Specialization

Program Description

Classes offered in the Computer-Aided Drafting & Design Technology major program will introduce you to architectural and mechanical design that will prepare you to work as a drafts person. Approximately one-half of the courses taken are in drafting and design technology. Students will also take courses in related areas and general education. MECC utilizes CADD operations extensively. Micro-Station PC, AutoCADD, and 3D software programs are available. These programs are the most widely used in industry in our service area. Computer-Aided Drafting & Design Technology major classes are available to evening students.

Opportunities for Employment

Successful completion of the Associate of Applied Science degree in the Computer-Aided Drafting & Design Technology major will prepare you for employment in areas in drafting and design including: mechanical, architectural, structural steel, and civil engineering.

Program Requirements

Students are required to take English and mathematics placement tests. Developmental classes in these area may be required. Students may not take a course out of normal sequence without the approval of your instructor.
