CAD and Engineering Graphics
CIP Code:    151301

Students enrolled in CAD develop marketable job skills in Computer Aided Design (CAD).  They may seek employment under the supervision of an architect or a mechanical or civil engineer.  Students use the latest technology in CAD to develop skills common to all drafting specialties.  The student has the opportunity to demonstrate skills such as how to make orthographic projections, assembly and presentation drawings.  Through field trips, presentations and research, students become aware of career opportunities, wages and working conditions.  In the third year of this program, students will have the opportunity to specialize in Mechanical or Architectural Design.  After graduation, the student may enter the work force or become a full time student.  To enhance employment opportunities after graduation, students should continue their education in a post-secondary school.  Several colleges, upon review and approval, accept portfolios for advanced placement.
