The Mechanical Drafting Technology curriculum prepares technicians to produce drawings of mechanical parts, components of mechanical systems, and mechanisms. CAD and the importance of technically correct drawings and designs based on current standards are emphasized.
Course work includes mechanical sketching, CAD, and proper drawing documentation. Concepts such computer integrated manufacturing, computer numerical control, and computer integrated manufacturing as they relate to the design process are also included. The use of proper dimensioning and tolerance techniques is stressed.
Graduates should qualify for employment in mechanical areas such as manufacturing, fabrication, research and development, and service industries.
