Whether designing a downtown skyscraper, a roller coaster at a theme park, or an automobile, an architect’s job doesn’t solely focus on aesthetics. Rather, he or she must take function, safety, cost, and feasibility into account when undertaking a project. The CADD program readies students for such a mindset moving forward. Successful graduates may continue their education at a two or four-year college working towards a career as an architect, CAD operator, draftsperson, civil technician, land surveyor, engineer, mechanical drawer, or industrial design technician. Successful CADD graduates may be eligible for college credits at several two and four-year colleges and universities.
