Engineering Technology - Engineering Graphics/CAD, AAS

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

Program Code: AASEG

Students of the Engineering Graphics Technology program take a series of courses covering the principles of Engineering Graphics that provide extensive laboratory experience, stressing the application of those principles. This program provides hands-on experience to prepare students for employment in association with engineers and designers. The diversity of the curriculum provides opportunities for students to develop proficiency in specialized areas such as Bodyline Design, Tool and Die, and Injection Mold Design.

While most graduates enter the job market as engineering graphics technicians and work with engineers in the preparation of technical drawings, some graduates enter fields where they are responsible for the interpretation and implementation of drawings. Other technologists become designers and assist engineers in preparing design details and specifications for engineering projects.

Program Outcomes/Objectives:

When students complete this program, they will be able to:

  1. develop two-dimensional engineering designs in accordance with ASME standards utilizing CAD.
  2. create constructive solid geometry using three-dimensional CAD solid modeling software.
  3. design manufacturing tooling using three-dimensional engineering design software.
