Students completing an Associate of Applied Science degree in Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Technology are qualified to play a support role to the engineering professions in industrial, research, and academic areas preparing drawings, blueprints, layouts, bills of materials, manufacturing, and product support documentation. Training in the area of advanced computer-aided drafting is also included.
In addition to applied technical courses, Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Technology includes a co-op experience. Students must complete EBE 1000, Employability Skills, and then work with the Office of Career Management to secure an appropriate co-op site.
Embedded Certificate This degree program contains one or more embedded certificates which will automatically be awarded if the certificate requirements are met unless the student contacts Records and Registration and indicates he/she does not wish to have the certificate credential awarded.
* The co-op must be a minimum of 4 semester hours in any combination of co-op (EBE 2701, EBE 2702, EBE 2703, EBE 2704).
The program schedule 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 advisor for help in planning their schedules.
It is recommended students starting the program have one year each of high school algebra, trigonometry, and physics or the equivalents.
Students enrolled in Associate of Applied Business and Associate of Applied Science degree programs are preparing for employment upon graduation from the program. However, at some point many of these students are also interested in completing a bachelor's degree. A number of colleges or universities have designed bachelor's completion programs designed for students completing applied degrees. See the Transfer section of the catalog for more information.
