In the ECAD AAS degree program you will use Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CAD) systems to create engineering drawings. Emphasis is placed on mechanical drafting standards, components and design for manufacturing. Graduates of the program find employment as mechanical drafters, engineering assistants, technicians, and technical sales people.
The Digital Fabrication Technology certificate is designed for individuals interested in learning more about automation and manufacturing technologies and systems. If you are enrolled in ECAD, Engineering, Math and Science programs/disciplines you may also benefit from this technical set of courses designed to prepare graduates for entry level employment or continuing education in technical/engineering fields. Additionally, this certificate serves as the entrance into the ECAD program.
Articulation agreements provide students with educational plans that help them transfer into four-year colleges and universities.
