Drafting and Design Technology, A.A.S.
Program Location: Bay Minette Campus
Applied Technologies Division
Length: Four Semesters
The Drafting and Design/Additive Manufacturing Technology program provides the technical training for students to interpret and produce engineering and architectural graphics and data. Visualization skills are developed to design and evaluate technical content. With the use of Computer—Aided-Design 3D Solid modeling software the student will gain the skills to design and convert complex virtual CAD models into physical products. The program prepares the student for a career in engineering, manufacturing, architecture, and construction where intelligent graphics, 3D Printing, Rapid Prototyping, Additive Manufacturing Technologies, and Direct Digital Manufacturing are required throughout the design process.
This is a career program designed for students to go directly into the labor market upon completion. Although some of the courses in this program will transfer to four-year institutions, this program is not designed to be a transfer program of study; therefore, it is not subject to the terms and conditions of STARS.
Upon completion of Semester One, students are eligible for Design Basic Short-Term Certificate.
Upon completion of Semester Two, students are eligible for 3-D Design Technology Short-Term Certificate.
Upon completion of Semester Three, students are eligible for Intermediate 3-D Design Short-Term Certificate.
