Computer-Aided Design Certificate

This program is offered at Clark State's Springfield location.

The Computer-Aided Design Certificate is designed to provide the technical background necessary to produce mechanical drawings using computer-aided drafting techniques. Manufacturing coursework is included to help students understand the principles of manufacturability in mechanical design.

Certificate programs are designed for those students who seek to enhance their job-related skills in a specialized area. These certificates are typically a portion of the courses in one of the associate degree programs. Coursework included in this certificate program can ultimately be applied towards Computer-Aided Design and Manufacturing Engineering Associate degrees.

The program schedule that follows is designed for full-time students who have completed all prerequisites and who have no college preparatory recommendations. Many individuals, especially part-time students, and those taking college preparatory courses, will require additional semesters of study. Students should consult their academic advisors for help in planning their schedules.

Scholastic Preparation
The amount of time required to complete a certificate program is dependent on the level of student preparation. Students starting the programs should have had one year each of high school algebra, trigonometry, and physics or equivalent. Students may take these preparatory courses at Clark State, but it will require a longer amount of time to complete their program.
