*If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed transferable college credit(s) at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101  during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the degree by 1 credit. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.

Program Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of this degree, students will be able to:

  1. recognize and apply standard drafting principles in a CAD environment;
  2. develop working knowledge and skills to effectively and efficiently create drawings using several software programs;
  3. identify and explain the function and purpose of CAD system components;
  4. apply basic dimensioning procedures; and
  5. plot CAD drawings at designated scales.

Program Description:

The Computer-Aided Design for Architecture and Engineering degree program is designed to prepare the student for an entry-level position in the mechanical, architectural, civil, structural, or other design-related industry. Students graduating with this degree may find employment under the guidance of engineers as CAD operators, engineering technicians, CAD drafters, and design assistants creating technical drawings for engineering applications.
