Drafting is required for the design, development, manufacturing and construction of most products. Drafters translate data and sketches from engineers, architects and scientists into detailed drawings that are used in manufacturing and construction. The Drafting Technology program at Northwest College provides students with a comprehensive education that focuses on the correct use of state-of-the-art Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) software. Coursework covers basic through advanced two-dimensional (2-D) and three-dimensional (3-D) CADD applications, through the effective use of individualized educational techniques. Students are exposed to a variety of drafting fields, including mechanical, architectural, structural, and civil drafting technology. Current drafting and related industry standards and techniques are covered in detail, in addition to building applicable work habits, logic and skills. The program works well for students with disabilities, as customized computer workstations are available with adaptive equipment.
