Academic and Career Advising

Program Description
Engineering Design/Drafting Technology is a profession that encompasses a variety of engineering disciplines that are always in high demand: mechanical, civil, piping, electronics, structural, and industrial. Students develop skills in technical drafting, CAD (Computer Aided Design), and the drafting practices specific to each of these discipline areas. Drafters and designers are an integral part of a project team in every field, developing the drawings and designs for fabrication and construction.

Skills USA - All students enrolled in the engineering design/drafting technology program are members of Skills USA, sponsor of the Professional Development Program (PDP). This program is designed to promote leadership, communication, social, and employability skills.

Transfer/Articulation Information
The courses for this certificate constitutes approximately half of the Engineering Design Manufacturing Technology: AAS (CTE) degree.  That degree (as well as these courses) articulate to Weber State University.
