What is CAD?
Computer-aided design (CAD) is an advanced, rapidly evolving technology used by designers, engineers and technical illustrators to create technical drawings and computer models. It is essential to many industries because drawings and computer models are required before any product can be manufactured.
CAD involves a specialization in one of the following:
- technical illustration
- general CAD/D
- engineering design
Because of its broad application, CAD will also lead to a variety of employment opportunities such as, CAD draftsperson/operator, mechanical draftsperson, designer, engineering technician, technical illustrator and digital prototyping technician.
