Computer Aided Design and Drafting

Nothing can be built without a design, and you're a designer.

You're the type of person who can "see" the whole design on paper first before it's even built. You've probably even sketched out a blueprint or two on a napkin over the years. At Harford, you'll hone and master the software skills you need to pursue a career in computer-aided design and drafting (CADD).

CADD professionals are in high demand and many industries need a skilled draftsperson like you. At Harford Community College, we offer a computer-aided design and drafting degree that can prepare you for transfer or immediate transition into an entry-level position within various industries.
