In conjunction with their academic advisor, students can select elective courses from many areas to focus their program of study such as, Mechanical Design, Architectural Design, Computer Aided Design/ Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM), Civil Design, Computer Graphics, and others.
Students in the Design Technology program have access to the most current hardware and software used in the disciplines. Overall program emphasis is on technical rigor and foundation development. Graduates have the skills and knowledge required to respond to future employment challenges or continue their education at other colleges or universities.
The Design Technology program prepared students for careers in a variety of environments including, architectural firms, construction companies, big manufacturing companies, medical companies, fire safety companies, machining companies, and more! Graduates will also have the foundation needed to begin a career in this field or to transfer to the four-year university of their choice.
