Drafting

Turning ideas into designs, drafters create drawings and 3-D models using Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CAD) software. Major career fields for drafters include: architectural, mechanical, civil, piping, electrical and structural drafting.

The drafting program prepares students for the workforce or provides foundational skills for engineering and design programs at the university level.
