AutoCAD

THE BROAD WORLD OF COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN (CAD)

The power and versatility of Computer Aided Design (CAD) technology in various industries largely impacts the way professionals can envision their designs. From development, modification and optimization of the design process, CAD’s role in the workforce has transformed the visualization of projects. In this course, students will have the opportunity to be hands-on with the software. Students will hear from two experts in the field on their experiences using CAD. In addition, students will learn about various applications of CAD and advanced training options that are available to upgrade their skillset to master the applications.
