CAD & Design

Associate in Applied Science

This dynamic program prepares students for entry level design and engineering technology positions where the CAD system is used to drive the concurrent design and manufacturing environment. The complete product lifecycle is addressed from concept to the end of the product's useful life. Students use devices such as rapid prototyping to develop digital design solutions. Emphasis is placed on both product and process (tool) design in the second year. Related electives explore the translation of the CAD model into the basis for manufacturing related design activities, known as CAM (computer aided manufacturing). Graduates often find employment engaged in design related activities, in areas such as aerospace, defense, automotive, and medical technology.
