STEM PROGRAM

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

AutoCAD drafters are employed by manufacturing companies, engineering firms, and architectural firms. Drafters build on the ability to visualize concepts and designs and bring their ideas to life using Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) methods. Drafters use computer software to turn the concepts and specifications of architects, engineers and other manufacturing designers into blueprints and drawings. The year long program covers focused instruction in the use of CAD programs including Solid Works and Autodesk. Several students completing this program have continued to pursue a degree in engineering.

OCCUPATION DESCRIPTION:

AutoCAD Drafter: Know engineering and manufacturing terminology, read blueprints, add 3D life to 2D drawings, annotate technical drawings with dimensions styles, text, and multileaders block text, transition AutoCAD designs from concepts to workable construction documents, explore techniques for creating and designing three-dimensional, prepare structural and assembly drawings of machinery, prepare sketches and drawings that include pneumatic hydraulic drawings, prepare drawings to be printed or shared with others and print 3D images of drawings.
