This 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. The CAD Architecture and Civil Certificate provides the student with the skills necessary to become a successful CAD drafter or architectural design assistant.
