The Mechanical Drafting Technology curriculum prepares students to apply technical skills and advanced computer software and hardware to create working drawings, graphic representations and computer simulations for mechanical and industrial designs. Includes instruction in engineering graphics, specification interpretation, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, drafting calculations, two dimensional and three dimensional engineering design, solids modeling, engineering animation, computer-aided drafting (CAD), computer-aided design (CADD) and manufacturing materials and processes. Graduates should qualify for employment in mechanical areas such as manufacturing, fabrication, research and development, and service industries.

Potential employers for graduates:
Have you ever thought of how the products you use every day come about? Everything from your tooth brush to the parts that hold your car together starts with a drawing. Drafting is a combination of engineering and design. Drafters take innovative ideas and place them on paper for manufacturing and construction purposes. The skills you will learn in a drafting classroom will not only facilitate success in your career choice, but will also help with everyday tasks.
