Associate of Applied Science Degree

Click here for a printer friendly version of this program.

Recommended basic skills standards are:

This program prepares students for drafting positions in manufacturing, engineering, and other areas requiring production-ready drawings and models. Students will learn to prepare 2D and 3D drawings for fabrication using the latest release of AutoCAD. In addition, students will learn blueprint reading, problem-solving techniques, methods for customizing AutoCAD, use of research tools, general organizational skills and applications in geometry and trigonometry.

Students should schedule a meeting with the computer aided drafting program advisor prior to enrolling in classes. During this meeting, student’s goals and preparedness can be assessed.

Students may complete deficiencies concurrently with the beginning courses in the program. Students not meeting a course prerequisite must have instructor permission to enroll. Students must have the ability to type 20 WPM or have completed BTE 100. Students must be proficient in computer file maintenance or complete CIS 110 within their first semester.

Students must meet with an advisor to select appropriate technical electives.
