CADD Degree (180)
Over the last few decades, the drafting, design, and manufacturing industries have become heavily computerized. The Computer-Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) programs offered by BCCC are structured to prepare a segment of the workforce to compete for jobs in these industries. Large and stable CADD-related job markets exist both nationwide and in the Baltimore/Washington region. The CADD associate degree and/or CADD experiences are increasingly important parts of the required qualifications for many job titles: engineers (all branches), designers, drafters, manufacturers, assemblers and fabricators, graphics designers and artists, interior designers, technical illustrators, shipbuilders, map-makers, animators, CADD system managers, CADD programmers, and others.
The CADD AAS degree program offers a balanced course of study in drafting and design with the aid of state-of-the-art software, computers, and input/output devices. Students are prepared to qualify for jobs where CADD associates work as the important CADD link in the modern design process with engineers and architects on one hand and detail drafters and manufacturers on the other hand. Emphasis is on engineering drawing, architectural drawing, engineering design, and realistic 3D modeling.
