Skilled drafters interpret the ideas of engineers and present them in the language of manufacturing and construction. In the past, drafters primarily produced working and schematic drawings using a variety of drafting machines, rules, T-squares, curves, triangles, and other drawing tools. Today, individuals in this role produce these drawings using a computer-assisted drawing system known as CAD.
This program develops the skills necessary to determine the information to include on drawings. Areas of study include taking and interpreting measurements, manufacturing, interpreting technical information related to materials and the manufacturing process, illustrating the arrangement of components and power train systems, interpreting and creating drawings and sketches, specialized functions of a computer-aided drafting program.Note: this program includes a three week-long internship, and is available in both English and French.
