Anything that is three-dimensional – pens, desks, buildings, industrial equipment, anything you can touch – has to be designed by a drafting technician before it can be created. Whether it’s AutoCAD, Revit, Inventor, or CATIA, the Drafting Technology Department works hard to stay on the cutting edge of all the design software available in industry. The department allows students to select a specialization within their program of study – either architectural or mechanical design. You can also start in high school with dual enrollment certification options.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics reports a 14% job growth in the industry with an average salary of nearly $48K annually – $49,600 for architectural and civil drafters, and $47,880 for mechanical.
The program is also part of the sustainable technology movement at Savannah Tech and is available for Learning Community opportunities with a number of courses and dedicated tutors, ask for details.
