Engineering/Computer Aided Drafting

Design it – Produce it!

Students with Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) skills are in high demand by manufacturing, architecture, and other industries. A person possessing good CAD skills, along with a solid professional image, will have many career and educational opportunities.

Students can expect to spend the majority of their class time using computer software programs found in business and industry. Successful students possess strong math and problem solving skills, the ability to work equally well either independently or in a group, and are self-motivated and goal oriented.

CAD: Computer Aided Drafting and Design
CAD programs teach students the basics of mechanical and building design from the traditional drawing board to new technology. Because the program collaborates with the manufacturing and building trades programs, students get real world experience in designing and producing actual parts or building structures. Students can use these skills to gain high-paying jobs and to continue education sometimes paid by the employer.

CAD programs are available at Brighton, Hartland, Howell and Pinckney with different schools having specific areas of concentration
