Career opportunities in the fields of mechanical design, architectural design and computer animation require designers that are competent, knowledgeable and highly-skilled in the use of the latest software and methods. The CAD department trains students utilizing the latest software including AutoCAD, PTC Creo, SolidWorks, Cimatron, SoftPlan, Sweet Home 3D, RevIt, Google SketchUp, Maya, ZBrush and Unity. CAD students utilize the design process to solve real world projects. With the help of high-end software, hands-on DFM and DFA studies and a variety of 3D printers, students are able to take the design process through all of its stages by brainstorming, designing, creating a working prototype, troubleshooting and eventually manufacturing. Creating 3D models, technical drawings, floor plans, computer animations, and working prototypes prepares students to pursue careers in manufacturing, construction, animation or further their CAD education at the college level.
