Engineering Design

Award: Diploma
Length: 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.

NCC is an Affiliate Member of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) and is involved in the SkillsUSA conferences and competitions. Our students have gained state and national recognition, by participating in the SkillsUSA competitions, on a yearly basis. Students have also improved their leadership skills through SkillsUSA.

Where will I get a job?
Graduating from Engineering Design prepares you to work as a drafting technician or to continue your education at NCC and obtain the Design Technology degree.

How much $ will I make?

Drafting graduates start at approximately $14–$18 an hour.

What kind of classes will I take?
Class is both hands on and lecture with a 70/30 split.
