School:Nova Scotia Community College
Faculty:School of Trades and Technology
Field of Study:CAD/CADD Drafting and/or Design Technology/Technician
Description:A CAD Technician works with designers and engineers to convert their ideas and concepts for new products and designs into accurate drawings that specify size, shape, materials and other specifications. These drawings are then used by professionals in manufacturing, consulting and construction to produce the desired product or structure.

In this program, you're introduced to mechanical drafting disciplines and become familiar with the many additional opportunities that are available in other graphic related fields. Technical mathematics and communications specific to these fields are integrated. Problem-solving abilities and drafting skills are honed through practical assignments where you think through the process of drawing development. Production of drawings using computer-aided-drafting (CAD) is a significant component. 3D solid modelling and parametric concepts are introduced and utilized and other computer applications are used to produce documents related to the manufacture, marketing and use of the products.
