Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Engineering Technology

Certificate in CADD Modeling (Advanced)

The Advanced CADD Modeling Certificate is the third of the CADD certificates and continues to prepare students for employment and career advancement opportunities.

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. This certificate prepares you to do basic and advanced manual CNC programming. Students will develop an engineering concept through the detail design process and produce professionally finished engineering drawings.
