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.
Priority admission into Drafting and Design Technology is given to applicants who score a composite of 15 with minimum score of 15 in math on the ACT test or a particular score on the COMPASS test. If departmental enrollment is less than 40, conditional admission will be granted to applicants who score less than 15 in rank order.
This program prepares students for entry-level employment as drafters, detailers or CAD technicians in fields such as architecture, engineering, surveying and mapping.
