Computer-Aided Drafting (CAD)
Two options exist for students interested in the CAD program:
- Associates of Applied Science Degree – Computer-Aided Drafting. This program option provides students with a comprehensive knowledge of CAD. Students will be able to choose from a list of optional CAD courses to allow emphasis in architectural, industrial, civil or broad scope applications as desired. Additional courses in science and math are required.
- Certificate of Achievement – Computer-Aided Drafting. This certificate provides the student with knowledge of computer-aided drafting (CAD) while requiring a shorter time commitment than the Associate of Applied Science degree. Students take courses to suit their interests.
- Associate of Science Degree – Pre-Engineering. An Associates of Science degree in Pre-Engineering provides up to two years of transferred credit toward a Bachelors of Science degree in numerous engineering disciplines at many four-year institutions, including
- Missouri S&T (formerly University of Missouri Rolla)
- University of Missouri Columbia
- University of Missouri St. Louis/Washington University Joint Undergraduate Engineering Program
- Washington University
General Technology Associate of Applied Science. This degree program provides a broad scope of technical skills applicable to technician employment in appropriate industry or service companies. A core foundation including computer hardware/software applications, math, science, CAD and electronics is combined with specialized study areas relative to student/employer interest. Program opportunities exist for graduates as entry level technicians or for skill advancement of currently employed personnel in technical fields.
