Computer-Aided Drafting and Design Technology


At TCC, the Computer-Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) Technology program has three different options for students seeking to obtain a degree or choosing to develop or update their technical skills.

The Architectural Drafting and Design Technology specialization prepares students for work in architectural, engineering, and design firms. The Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree concentrates on mechanical drafting and design and prepares students for employment in the fields of mechanical and machine design, structural, manufacturing, civil engineering, marine design, and construction.

Students may transfer course work to a baccalaureate degree program in an engineering technology area.

For those seeking only to acquire or hone their technical skills, there is a Certificate in Computer-Aided Drafting and Design Technology which primarily consists of technical courses. Students who already have a degree frequently see this Certificate as an excellent choice.
