This unique program offers students an intensified training in computer aided drafting (CAD). Students receive instruction in eleven courses, followed by a two-month internship (practicum) with an area company, gaining valuable hands-on experience as an entry level CAD Technician. This program is offered only in a full-time day schedule, and is ideal for individuals who need to enter or re-enter the workforce within a short period of time. Credits are transferable, and many graduates continue on in 2-year degree programs after entering the workforce.
