AET/M Computer-Aided Drafting and Design

Bachelor of Science (AETM): Computer-Aided Drafting & Design

Bachelor of Science, Applied Engineering & Technology Management, CADD Option

The Computer-Aided Drafting and Design option is designed to provide students with theoretical and practical skill in drafting/design. This option provides survey experiences in drafting/design and advanced work in the areas of technical freehand drawing, design methodology, model building, residential architectural design and detailing, descriptive geometry, and technical illustration and rendering using computer-aided drafting systems. Technical electives allow students to choose advanced concentration or to explore areas of interest such as CNC or robotics. Students are also encouraged to seek an industrial internship position to gain practical experience with industrial production procedures. All courses feature practical laboratory experiences allowing students to work with equipment, materials, and processes that will lead to successful careers in the drafting/design field. Graduates of this option typically work in careers such as industrial design, CADD management,
mechanical design, industrial sales and support, technical illustration, and residential design; they often work in administrative and supervisory positions.

Upon the completion of the CADD option, the student will be able to:

  • Use a wide variety of drafting/design equipment and materials to solve problems in the drafting or design environment.
  • Apply drafting standards to engineering or architecture.
  • Use computer-aided drafting/design systems for producing 2D mechanical and architectural drawings, as well as for solids modeling and design applications.
  • Demonstrate a high level of problem-solving ability in the practical application of theoretical principles.
  • Apply theories of product design for developing and refining products for human use.
  • Identify the technical specifications for computer-aided drafting/design systems and for selecting and configuring appropriate CADD workstations.
  • Utilize presentation drawings and models in the development of products for both mechanical and architectural applications.
