Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study, Credit - Alphabetical Listing

Semester Sequence

This is a suggested schedule for a student who has completed any developmental course work and has no transfer credits.


Requirements and Electives - 15 Credits

Total Number of Credits Required: 15*

*Credit students who are new to college (no successfully completed college coursework at other institutions) are required to take ACDV 101  in the first semester at CCBC. This is a 1-credit class, and it does not count towards the number of credits required for a degree or certificate. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) for this requirement to be waived.


Program Description

Certificates are awarded to students completing the course pattern with a 2.0 GPA or higher. Courses may be taken in any sequence as long as the prerequisites are met. The CAD certificate program prepares students to work as computer-aided drafters/designers in industry and to upgrade the skills of persons presently employed as drafters in a relatively short academic period by including only CADD and supporting courses. Course work completed in the CADD certificate program is fully applicable to the CADD Associate of Applied Science degree.

The CAD Architecture certificate option provides the student with the skills necessary to become a successful CAD drafter or architectural design assistant.

Program Outcomes

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

  1. discuss current trends in architecture and Building Information Modeling (BIM);
  2. use the automated features of Autodesk Revit© software; and
  3. describe the basic construction drawings used to build a structure.
