Computer Aided Drafting and Design

Drafting small.jpg

The Computer Aided Drafting and Design program teaches students all about drafting fundamentals, techniques, and tools, the design process, mechanical components, and architectural design. A drafter is an individual who creates detailed drawings of machinery, mechanical objects, buildings, and sites. Drafting was traditionally done by hand but is now completed with sophisticated software.


Students will proficiently learn Autodesk AutoCAD, Fusion 360, and Revit. These are computer aided drafting, design, manufacturing, and engineering software applications used to create 2D drawings, 3D models, animations, and motion and structure analysis. The students use computers, plotters, laser engravers, 3D printers, scanners, and more.

CADD students may earn Transition Math embedded credit and a non-transcript art credit.

This program can be completed in one year (540 clock hours).

Class starts in August each year.
