This program is designed to provide entry-level skills for students seeking employment in the drafting profession as a mechanical or architectural drafter. Students receive substantial training in mechanical drafting and industrial practices using both manual (board) and CAD (Computer-Aided Drafting) techniques. Application of ANSI, ISO, and AIA standards is presented, with emphasis on standards used in the aircraft and aerospace industries.  Advanced instruction in mechanical drafting, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, and flat pattern development is provided in the latter part of the program.

Students become familiar with electronic schematics, document control procedures, and pictorial drawing. Related instruction in mathematics, oral and written communications, human relations/business leadership and employment skills, and basic computer and word processing applications are also provided.  Ample time is devoted to hands-on instruction throughout the program.
