This certificate program is designed to provide students with
a solid foundation of Computer Aided Design and Drafting
(CADD) through familiarization with the computer, peripheral
devices and specialized software. This program prepares
students to function as entry-level CADD technicians and
operators who assist engineers and architects in all design
and drawing preparation phases.
Upon successful completion of the CADD certificate, students will be able to:
- Create and revise CADD drawings.
- Choose appropriate tools and techniques to produce effective and well organized CADD drawings.
- Use industry terminology and standards.
- Identify opportunities to improve productivity and accuracy and construct appropriate solutions.
Conventional drafting practices have given way to the use
of CADD. With the number of CADD positions continuing
to increase into the future, employment opportunities will
continue to grow. These opportunities include, but are not
limited to the following: CADD Operator, Design Assistant,
Layout or Mechanical Draftsperson, CADD Technician or
Engineering technicians. Credits earned in this certificate
program are applicable to the Associate of Applied Science
degree in CADD.
Students earning a certificate from HCC must complete or demonstrate exemption from the following courses: ENG 003 and ENG 012, or ENG 018, and MATH 020. See graduation requirement details in this catalog for further information.
