3D Cadd Modeling

Program Description

The need to attract more students into engineering is a national concern. The 3D Computer-Aided Drafting Design Certificate continues to prepare a student to use and/or pursue a career using CAD and meets the need of individuals:

  • seeking entry-level employment opportunities.
  • seeking to upgrade their technical skills.
  • preparing for career advancement opportunities.

NVCC's Engineering Technologies programs prepare graduates to be engineering technicians who are able to respond to the changing demands of Connecticut's "high tech" industries.
