Computer Aided Design Program Information
Associate of Applied Science
Computer-aided design (CAD) technicians design most of the products we use in our day-to-day lives, using technology to create 3-D models and 2-D production drawings. Some technicians work for manufacturing corporations or design firms, and others work independently, accepting contracts to create specific designs. CAD technicians work in almost every industry: packaging, aerospace, furniture, automotive manufacturing, and more. Graduates of the program can continue their education with a bachelor degree in engineering — for example, Mechanical Engineering or Civil Engineering.
