Employers have told us they are looking for employees who can design, build, and measure. They spoke. . . . we listened.

CAD (Computer Aided Design) and CNC (Computer Numeric Controlled) programming/machining are separate skilled areas of applied technology. Join the two and you have a new hybrid program that aims to foster the development flexible, multiple skilled manufacturing workers.

There are many ways to enter this exciting academic program/career field.

1. CAD/CNC Accelerated Academy - An 8 week course that expedites entry level CAD/CNC skills to prepare students for next classes in the certificate or degree program.
2. CAD/CNC Advanced Accelerated Academy - An 8 week course, 6 credit hours, to move you that much closer to your educational goal.
3. CAD/CNC Certificate program - A one year program for CAD/CNC skills and careers.
4. CAD/CNC Associate Degree - A two year program for CAD/CNC advanced skills and careers.

Development of this program was made possible by a TAACT grant from the United States Department of Labor. New equipment including a mini-mill, 6 CNC simulators and a Coordinate Measuring Machine give students more experience in the classroom on cutting edge technology.
