Two Semesters & One Summer Term
Fall semester entry
As an Engineering Design student, you will learn to prepare detailed working drawings for the manufacturing industry. The program provides extensive training on up to date software in Computer Aided Drafting and Parametric modeling software. You will also learn to take these drawings and make “life sensitive” parts that are critical in everything from tractors to medical equipment to jet engines. You will learn the latest techniques on state of the art equipment. You will learn hands off machining by use of computer numerical controlled (CNC) as well as hands on skills by use of bench tools, measurement devices, drills, lathes, milling machines and more. After completing this program, you will be able to translate design ideas, specifications, and calculations into a working drawing, a mock-up, or into a hands-on project for industry use.
