Drafting & Design Technology

  • Golden Triangle campus
  • Associate's Degree program
The Drafting and Design Technology curriculum prepares the student for employment in the field of technical graphical representation. The classroom training provides a sound foundation in the basics of drafting practice and is closely related to actual industrial standards. The subjects taught include architectural drafting, machine drafting, surveying, civil drafting, and computer-aided drafting. In order to meet industrial demands, computer-aided drafting is the basis of all courses.
