Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Engineering Technology

Certificate in 2D Computer-Aided Drafting

The 2D Computer-Aided Drafting Certificate meets the need of individuals interested in a basic exposure to, and /or exploration of, using and applying 2D CAD.

The Advanced CADD Modeling Certificate can be attained while you are enrolled and working toward a degree, or it can be achieved in and of itself. Students will work on creating 2D professionally finished drawings under the supervision of a senior draftsperson.
