Spring Semester 2019 Catalog

Architectural and Engineering Drafting Technology, Diploma

Overview

Offered at the Augusta campus

Day & Evening Classes

Entrance Dates: Fall
Length of Program: Four Terms (Day)
Credit Hours Required for Graduation: 49/50

Program Description: The Architectural and Engineering Drafting Technology program at Augusta Technical College is a sequence of specific discipline courses designed to prepare students to become Drafters for the Architectural or Mechanical Engineering Technology disciplines. Core classes provide the student with background and skills in mathematics, communications, computer skills, engineering materials, interpersonal relations and professional development. This program of study emphasizes expertise in computer-aided drafting while creating working drawings for architectural and mechanical designs. High school graduation or GED is required for admission to this program.

Instruction is delivered through a combination of lecture and laboratory work to provide students with both theory and application in Architectural and Engineering Drafting Technology relating to the Architectural or Mechanical Engineering Technology disciplines.

Employment Opportunities: Job skills in the engineering technology disciplines are increasing. Within the engineering technology disciplines, support jobs such as computer-aided drafting (CAD) will also be increasing. These support jobs require the technician to have the latest training in CAD and technical design techniques. These training skills and techniques may be acquired in Architectural and Engineering Drafting Technology. Architectural and Engineering Drafting Technology is a one-year technical diploma program offering the latest skills in the area of Architectural or Mechanical computer-aided drafting. As students graduate, they may find work with Architects, Engineers, and industry as a Design Drafter. As a Design Drafter, the technician will produce engineering drawings necessary for the construction of buildings and consumer products.
