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, CAD Operator, Revit, Inventor, or CATIA, the Drafting Technology department works hard to stay on the cutting edge of all the design software available in industry, like architecture or mechanical firms. The department allows students to select a specialization within their program of study – either architectural or mechanical design.
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.
