About this course
The CAD and Design Technology program at Baker College prepares you to develop your designs, using 2D drawings and 3D models. In our curriculum, developed with the guidance of industry professionals and employers, you learn practical skills in technical drafting, descriptive geometry, and computer-aided drawing techniques using the latest software. You also gain knowledge in production, through studies in manufacturing processes, materials, and the use of precision measuring tools. Your primary focus is on total design, and includes hands-on practice in the design and integration of related parts and components. When you complete the program, you’ll be prepared for an entry-level CAD technician position in any one of a number of areas, including products, machines, gages, fixtures, or to create CAD drawings and models for Web publication.
