CURRICULUM GUIDE

Computer-Aided Drafting/Design
Associate in Applied Science Degree

Curriculum Code: 0165  (Effective Fall 2003 - Summer 2008)

This program prepares individuals to apply technical knowledge and skills to
plan and prepare scale pictorial interpretations of engineering and design
concepts.  Students receive instruction in the use of precision drawing
instruments, computer-assisted design programs, sketching and illustration,
and specification interpretation.  Proficiency in the use of current computer-
aided design packages, up-to-date geometric tolerancing techniques, and
descriptive geometry applications is necessary to succeed in the industrial
workplace.  Employment possibilities include engineering firms, consulting
firms, the automotive industry, manufacturers of special machinery, tool and
die industry, etc.

Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course
prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section
for skills assessment and advising information.
