Computer-Aided Drafting and Design Technology, A.A.S.

Drafting technicians are engineering communication specialists who apply mathematics, computer applications and manual skills to develop specifications and drawings for the manufacturing and construction of virtually everything made in the world. JCCC’s drafting technology program offers students up-to-date equipment in facilities located in the Industrial Training Center on the JCCC campus. In addition, the program offers departmental specialty courses. The program provides students with the skills necessary to produce detailed shop drawings, land plats, erection drawings and designs for manufacturing, building, production, commercial building and site construction as well as detailed drawings and designs of components, assemblies and systems used in manufactured products.

Industrial growth and increasingly complex design problems will greatly increase the demand for design and drafting services, particularly using CAD equipment. Employers are most interested in applicants with drafting and mechanical skills, a background in CAD techniques and courses in math, science and engineering technology.

The two-year curriculum enables students to use the latest computer-aided design equipment. Course projects and laboratory procedures are similar to those used in industry.

An associate of applied science degree is awarded upon the successful completion of 64 credit hours.
