Plotting out the Future
The Civil Drafting Technician program gives students hands-on experience in the software used by civil engineers and land surveyors in an office setting. Students will receive special training in architecture, mechanical drafting, AutoCAD, and Civil 3D while learning how these programs are used in civil design, surveying, road design, and utility design. This program teaches students how to manage drafting projects and record daily logs. Graduates will gain an understanding of civil design principles, including the way data is collected by land surveyors and converted to workable drawings.
Graduates of the program will be prepared to seek employment as civil technicians and civil drafters, or in any other entry-level drafting position that requires knowledge of AutoCAD. Starting as a CAD Technician, graduates over time will have the ability to move up to work as a Civil Designer, road designer, or oilfield well site designer.
