Don't Let Paying for College be a Barrier to your education
Students in the Architectural and Engineering Design program are immersed in a project-based curriculum focused on architectural or mechanical drafting. They are exposed to state-of-industry software such as AutoCAD, Revit, SketchUp, and SOLIDWORKS. They receive one-on-one aid from experienced instructors, review best practices, and focus on industry standards. Throughout the program, students learn about drafting symbols, units of measure, scale, notation systems, 2D and 3D layouts, proper drawing sheet orientation, and redlining for drawing revision. All courses are computer-use intensive and competency-based. Students develop a solid working knowledge of visual communication and technical skills. Upon completion, students are prepared for entry-level employment or further continuing their education.
This program is open to qualified high school and adult students who meet the following program requirements:
ADULT STUDENTS: Have a high school diploma or equivalent
