The CAD Design program is designed to teach students how to use the computer systems of Computer Aided Drafting software as a tool to create geometric shapes, parts, and drawings.  Students will learn basic CAD drawing and editing commands and progress to using advanced commands that enhance productivity and accuracy.  Printers and plotters are utilized to create finished drawings to industry standards.  A variety of software is used such as Auto Cad, Inventory, 3D Studio Max, Revit, as well as Microsoft software.

CAD Design work has many specialties including aeronautical drafters, architectural drafters, civil drafters, mechanical drafters, process piping, and pipeline drafters.  There are many different opportunities in the career field.

Students in the Green Country Technology drafting program complete courses that qualify them for the CAD Mechanical Technician and CAD Design Architectural Specialist majors developed by Oklahoma CareerTech.  Methods used in these two majors meet ANSI (American National Standards Institute) and/or AIA (American Institute of Architecture) drafting standards.
