Technical Drafting/CAD

Students in the Technical Drafting/CAD program will learn the fundamentals of mechanical drafting procedures and standards.  Students gain insights into innovative manufacturing and rapid prototyping processes, students also develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills, preparing them for the challenges of the real world. This knowledge equips students to secure employment within manufacturing companies, and it also paves the way for co-op and internship opportunities, setting the stage for post-secondary education in engineering or manufacturing. Beginning with a focus on 2D CAD using AutoCAD, students progressively transition into the world of 3D modeling with Inventor and Fusion360.  As students advance, they'll collaborate on advanced architectural projects using Revit, all while exploring 3D printing and additive manufacturing, which forms a strong foundation for exciting careers in design, engineering, manufacturing and more

(Technical Drafting/CAD is held at the GI-TEC Mt. Pleasant Campus).
