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.
This certificate provides the student with skills comprehensive enough for entry-level employment in as little as one year. The student is afforded some latitude in upper-level course choices.
These technicians (i.e. drafting technicians or “drafters”) operate computer-aided design systems to produce final specifications and drawings for new designs. A drafter may work as a team member with engineers, analysts, architects, other drafters and/or designers assigned to a specific design. Drafters use special computer software for producing, communicating and revising detailed specifications and drawings.
SCC graduates are employed in a broad range of careers, including, but not limited to: Architectural drafter, automotive design drafter, CAD drafter, civil drafter, construction design, designer, detail drafter, detailer, die designer, die-drawing checker, drawings checker, electrical drafter, estimator, government record keeper, factory layout drafter, HVAC drafter, industrial drafter, manufacturing technician, product design drafter, SolidWorks designer, structural drafter, technical illustrator, tooling designer.
CAD graduates typically average between $14-$22/hour. Future promotion and advancement may be more limited with a Certificate of Achievement as compared to an Associate of Applied Science degree.
