Our program is intended to help students acquire up-to-date knowledge and skills required of drafters and designers. To receive a one-year certificate, you must take 43 credit hours of drafting design and technology classes. Students typically begin the drafting technology certificate program during the fall term and follow classes in a sequential order. Fundamental classes are repeated on a periodic basis, providing you with a variety of options for completing the certificate in a timely manner.

While in the program, students must:
  • Maintain a minimum "C" average letter grade in all required classes.
  • Achieve proficiency in modern CADD (computer aided drafting).
