 Level II Certificates

This certificate program, offered by the Division of Technology and Business, in Computer-Aided Drafting, is recommended for the individual who has prior drafting experience and wishes to update his/her skills. Manual drafting skills are recommended whether attained through Tech-Prep, college transfer, high school courses or work experience.

This certificate program, offered by the Division of Technology and Business, in Architectural Design is recommended for those individuals who wish to pursue a career in architectural residential design as an apprentice or trainee. This program provides students with learning experiences in computer-aided design, architectural (residential) design, and structural design.


Engineering Design AAS


The Engineering Design AAS (Associate in Applied Science) degree is a four-semester course of study, offered by the Division of Technology and Business. Specialized learning experiences include the implementation of computer-aided design software in various design disciplines. Instruction emphasizes the development of technical knowledge and drafting skills that are essential to the successful entrance in the job market as a design technician.

Former students have been employed as pipe designers, architectural designers, tool designers, civil designers, structural detail designers, electrical designers, and job estimators.

The Engineering Design program provides work-place experiences recommended by the U.S. Department of Labor Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS).  

Students entering the program must be TSI satisfied.

To be eligible for the Associate of Applied Science ā€“ Engineering Design degree, the student must maintain a grade of ā€œCā€ or above in all Engineering Design (WECM) classes as follows: DFTG 1405, DFTG 1409, DFTG 1410, DFTG 1417, ARCE 1352, DFTG 2319, DFTG 2338, DFTG 2406, DFTG 2407, DFTG 2423, DFTG 2430 and DFTG 2432.

Some upper level universities will allow you to transfer anywhere from 24-44 hours of your technical credit toward a Bachelor of Applied Arts or Science degree. Contact your transfer university for information.
