Computer-Aided Drafting: Design Technician Certificate (Post Secondary)

The one-year CAD certificate program allows the individual to quickly develop skills and hands-on experiences in drafting and CAD operation. The program prepares students for a position as a drafter or CAD operator and trains students to pursue objectives in the face of limited resources. Students wishing to further their studies after completing the certificate may choose to continue in an associate or baccalaureate degree program in technical areas such as mechanical engineering technology, industrial engineering technology and electrical engineering technology.

Students must satisfy the prerequisite of each course in the program by either: (a) completing the prerequisite courses, or (b) demonstrating to a computer technology faculty member that they have otherwise met the prerequisites. A minimum of 15 hours of coursework must be competed at Kent State University. Transfer credits may be used as long as letter grades appear on transcripts.
