The Drafting and Engineering Support curriculum is designed to prepare students for careers in industry as engineering support technicians who plan, prepare and interpret engineering sketches for design and drafting relative to mechanical and architectural designs, civil structures and developments, weldments, electronic circuits, or landscape architecture and design. Includes sketching and the application of Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) software to the creation of graphic representations and simulations in support of engineering projects.
A.A. and A.S. degrees as well as certificates can be earned in the Drafting and Engineering Support Program. The certificate programs do not satisfy A.A./A.S. degree requirements but do qualify students for a certificate in the field of study.
Successful completion prepares students for entry-level positions as document support technicians in the field of architecture, interior design, and kitchen/bath design.
If you are interested in planning and Building machines, this is the perfect option for you. The curriculum in Engineering Support- Mechanical/Civil Concentration, will prepare you for entry-level positions as document support technicians in the fields of mechanical and civil engineering. Make the machines that make the world turn.
