The Mechanical Design Technology program prepares the students to earn an Associate of Applied Science degree as they become skilled technicians using computer-aided drafting (CAD) software and equipment. The curriculum is designed to give students broad training with the most widely used software of AutoCAD, Pro-Engineer, SOLID WORKS, and other software in order to enhance their opportunities and promotion in the engineering/technical areas they wish to work. Drafting/design standards are taught in the development of technical engineering prints in designing machinery and equipment, consumer products, buildings, fabrications, installation, sales, and production.
