Computer aided design involves learning the computer applications for preparing detailed drawings used in engineering and manufacturing various products.   In the first year students learn the computer applications necessary to produce technical drawings, including three-dimensional color renditions.  In the second year the emphasis is on applying these skills in design projects, using AutoCAD,  3 ds Max, Revit, Solidworks and other design software to design buildings, cars, tools and industrial products.   Architectural and product modeling is also an integral part of the design process.  This course helps prepare students for college studies in the engineering fields, architecture, landscape design, product/industrial design and interior design.

Students can earn the following certifications:  American Design Drafting Association’s Mechanical Drafting and Architectural Drafting, Solidworks, AutoCAD, Microsoft Office Specialist, IC3 (Internet & Computing Core Certification), Adobe Certified Associate and OSHA 10-Hour Safety.

Machining is the process of shaping metal, plastics and other materials into precision parts for use in a variety of industries, including automotive, medical, aeronautic and others. Students learn to use MasterCam to design machined parts and both manual and computer numerical control (CNC) machines to manufacture them. Design, programming, welding and hands-on manufacturing are a major focus as students learn to use mills, lathes, surface grinders, plasma cutters, CNC machining and turning centers. Projects are enhanced through 3-D solid graphics, as students are able to simulate projects prior to manufacture. Past skill application projects have involved the design and manufacture of battlebots, mini-bikes, decorative auto parts and others. This course prepares graduates for post secondary technical colleges, apprenticeships or intermediate level positions in the machining and manufacturing industry.

Students will have the opportunity to qualify for Level 1 MasterCam CNC, Level 1 AWS Qualifications and OSHA 10-Hour Safety certifications.
