Computer-Aided Drafting and Design (AAS)

Computer-Aided Design is a universal language used to communicate ideas of design and construction details through the use of lines, symbols and dimensions. Successful completion of the program leads to the Associate in Applied Science Degree. (Students may elect only those courses required to develop a particular skill without enrolling in the entire program of study that leads to a degree.) Students who wish to complete a program in two years are advised to use a sequence of courses recommended by their counselor or by the instructor. If a student wishes to attend college on less than a full-time basis, the program may be extended beyond two years.
