Drafting is an intensive program emphasizing the development of manual and computer (CAD) drafting skills. The mission of this program is to equip graduates with the skills to create working drawings using both AutoCAD and SolidWorks to expected industry standards. In addition, graduates will be able to produce 2-D drawings and 3-D models for import into computer assisted manufacturing (CAM) software for computer numerical control (CNC) machining program generation.
Graduates will have the skills necessary to create working drawings of parts and machines, either manually or using a CAD program. They will have a working hands-on knowledge of the machining process from the creation of machine components from raw stock to quality control inspection using the ANSI standard for geometric dimensioning and tolerancing. Should students decide to continue their education in the pursuit of an A.A.S. degree in technology, all of these courses apply directly to the A.A.S. degree programs in Mechanical Technology: CAD Design, Manufacturing, and Machine Tool Technology.
