Engineering Design Technology

Love working with computers? Interested in a great-job and great-paying opportunities in manufacturing? The Engineering Graphics Technology program prepares students to translate product ideas into engineering models and documentation using computer software. Students also learn how to draw mechanical parts in three dimensions using CAD/CAM software packages such as ProE, CREO, Catia, and MasterCAM. By producing 3D prototypes, students experience the capabilities and limitations of equipment such as mills and lathes.

This exciting program will prepare you to translate product ideas into engineering drawings and documentation using computer software. In addition, you'll learn how to draw mechanical parts in three dimensions and use CAD/CAM software and equipment to produce parts. Instruction is included in software packages like AutoCad, Catia, and Solid Works. Graduates are typically employed as part of a design team by manufacturing, engineering, and mechanical companies.
