Image montage for the Drafting & Design Engineering Technology - Mechanical certificate program

Drafting and design engineering technologists prepare detailed drawings based on information, rough sketches, specifications, calculations and estimates prepared by other individuals or teams. Because the program is easily adapted to a number of specialized areas, it offers the opportunity for employment in architectural, construction, mechanical, electrical, and other related industries. This program also makes it possible for graduates of the Associate Degree to advance to a supervisory position in the drafting and design field.

As a result of ongoing changes in technology, the need to expand competencies, and changing transfer requirements, certificate and degree requirements may also change.

If you note changes in degrees or certificate requirements, or if courses are not offered in a particular semester, please consult with a counselor or faculty on how best to complete the program in which you are enrolled.
