This one-year program prepares students for employment as a detail drafter in the mechanical drafting field. For a new product to become reality, it must exist in the mind of the engineer, designer or drafter; then it is the detail drafter, working from design layouts, sketches and handbooks, who creates working drawings that aid in manufacturing the product.
Career Outlook: The employment outlook is favorable for mechanical drafters with current training in computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) systems. Positions typically available to program graduates include detail drafter, junior drafter and CAD operator.
