CAD Computer Aided Drafting
Central Oregon Community College offers a One-Year Certificate in Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) and an Associate of Applied Science (AAS). For students interested in obtaining CAD training, the One-Year Certificate is recommended. The AAS requires a core of CIS classes that may not appeal to those seeking a CAD education. Students wishing to pursue the AAS might consider completing the One-Year Certificate first and follow up by taking the requisite CIS classes. Relevant CAD classes include instruction in AutoCAD and specific software applications such as REVIT, Civil 3D and SolidWorks.
For students on a strict schedule or those who want to advance their careers or gain additional training, the One-Year Certificate program is a better alternative to the AAS degree. Click the Term Schedule link to see how you can fit these classes into your busy schedule.
Our primary goal is providing instruction leading to computer and drafting competence. The curriculum is rigorous and based on stated outcomes. Part of this process begins with the potential student. Consider current skill levels before enrolling in the program and think about the following:
- Strong Geometrical Math Skills
- Three Dimensional Visualization
- Comfortable using Computers
- Follow Specific Instructions
- Retain Complex Information
Success is our Goal!
