Program Description: The Architectural and Engineering Drafting Technology degree program Augusta Technical College prepares students for employment in a variety of positions in the Architectural and Mechanical drafting fields. The program provides learning opportunities which introduce, develop, and reinforce academic and technical knowledge, skills and attitudes required for job acquisition, retention, and advancement. Additionally, the program provides opportunities for students to upgrade present knowledge and skills or retrain in current drafting practices and techniques used on various Computer-Aided Drafting (CAD) packages and software. The program provides curriculum support to engineering technology programs at the associate level.

Instruction is delivered through a combination of lecture and laboratory work to provide students with both theory and applicable skills related to both Architectural and Mechanical drafting 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 program is a five term technical degree 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 be able to read, produce or revise engineering drawings necessary for the construction of buildings and consumer products in both the architectural or mechanical engineering realms.
