Drafting and Design Technology

Associate in Science

Drafters and designers produce schematic drawings and instrumentation diagrams and drawings of finished products. While trained to use traditional drafting machines, rules, curves, triangles and other drawing tools, most professional drafters and designers use computer-aided design software (CAD). Most drafters are expected to create freehand drawings and often incorporate lettering and label information to complete final design projects. Many areas of specialization offer unique opportunities within the field, each with its own collection of skills related to civil, electrical, electronic and mechanical architecture.
