Computer Aided Design and Drafting

This program provides students with a sound knowledge of Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) through familiarization with the computer, peripheral devices and specialized software. The program prepares students to function as Skilled CADD professionals who assist engineers and architects in all design and drawing preparation phases.

Employment/Career Potential

According to the 2016-2017 Occupational Outlook Handbook, employment in the field is expected to be approximately 200,000 by 2024. CADD has generally replaced conventional drafting practices, with the number of CADD positions steadily increasing. Designers, architects, drafters, engineering technicians, and engineers will be required to operate CADD systems effectively and proficiently in order to be functional in their respective or prospective positions.


The modern CADD lab is located in room 102 of Bel Air Hall and was recently updated with new computers, wide screen monitors and plotters.
