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.
