Computer-Aided Design Concentration, Mechanical Engineering Technology, A.A.S.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The Computer-Aided Design Concentration program gives students the opportunity to develop skills in computer-aided design (CAD). Lecture and laboratory courses provide an application-based study in engineering technology. Students obtain the scientific, engineering, and technical skills necessary to function as a contributing member of the engineering team. Articulation agreements exist with Washington County Public Schools, Fulton County Area Vocational Technical School, and Greencastle-Antrim High School for high school students to earn credit and/or dual-enroll in the program. The program is particularly beneficial for the in-service technical person who wishes to upgrade job skills or apply a degree toward a new position. This A.A.S. program is a career degree, preparing students for the workforce after graduation. However, students can opt to transfer to a four-year program rather than start a career, but should confer with advisors and transferring institutions for specific requirements.
