Drafting/CADD Engineering Technology  

The field of Computer Aided Design and Drafting Technology is for people interested in drafting layouts and building plans.  Graduates have the knowledge and skills to pursue a wide variety of employment opportunities in the design and construction industry, can visualize the way a design could look and manufacture that design for others.  Careers in this field of study include Mechanical Drafter, CAD Operator, Electrical Designer, and Aerospace Designer.

Independence Community College offers Drafting/CADD (Computer Aided Design and Drafting) Engineering Technology in both an Associate of Science and Associate of Applied Science degrees and offers plans that can be individually tailored to meet both student and employer needs.

Students in the program have the opportunity to sample a variety of interest areas within the discipline, including building and site planning, architectural graphic techniques, computer-aided drafting, materials and construction technology, architectural history, building codes, structures and more.  

Students wanting to transfer on to four-year institutions need to be aware of the specific requirements for transfer and seek advising/counseling in ICC’s Engineering Technology Department.
