Everything we use in our day-to-day lives has been designed by someone. CAD Designers use computer aided techniques for the creation of 3D models and production drawings. Computer aided design is used in all industries including entertainment, healthcare, commercial food preparation, packaging, aerospace, furniture, and automotive manufacturing.
This program prepares graduates for positions as designers with a focus on total design along with the communication/integration of the design of related parts or components. Students will learn to create 2D drawings and 3D models as well as obtain knowledge of manufacturing processes such as welding and sheet metal, engineering materials, and the use of precision measuring tools. Graduates may find positions in design areas such as product design, machine design, gage and fixture design, or in preparing CAD drawings/models for publication on the Web.
