Drafting (Computer-Aided-Design)

Associate in Applied Science

Dean: Dr. Edward Kremer

Program Coordinator: Roy Gault

Mission

The Drafting Program is committed to meeting the needs of the students who are enrolled in our courses. We are also committed to excellence in teaching.

The Department offers courses in the disciplines of GIS and CAD Drafting. We provide quality transfer courses, general education courses, prerequisites within vocational programs, and vocational courses.

All courses within the Drafting Program are designed to meet the needs of the students who take them and provide them with the knowledge, ability, skills, and the critical thinking (deductive reasoning) they will need to enter the modern marketplace.

Note:   Students should observe the "See course description" footnotes that appear throughout the following program. Many courses in this program have prerequisites or special notes or instructions of importance to students considering enrollment.

Designed to prepare students for a variety of drafting and design positions in business, industry, and government, this program provides instruction in drafting room techniques, procedures, processes, standards, and the care and use of tools and special instruments of the trade. CAD techniques utilizing Windows are emphasized in each course.

Since the transferability of courses will vary depending on the specific four-year institution, it is strongly recommended that if students are intending to transfer to a four-year institution, they must consult with the transfer institution and with their respective KCKCC advisor before enrolling in order to determine the transferability of their courses. It is the student's responsibility to follow the transfer requirements established by his/her transfer institution.
