Graduates of the program will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate knowledge and skills to produce engineering drawings which comply with American National Standards Institute (ANSI) regulations.

  2. Identify and use different tools, equipment, materials and products used in the industry.

  3. Use design software to structure solutions to respond to needs and solve characteristic, industry-related problems.

  4. Take an active role in a community context by earning AutoCAD User Certification and/or designation as a Certified SOLIDWORKS Associate.

  5. Develop search algorithms to find existing virtual models to incorporate as components of final designs.

  6. Create visual presentations with images, animations, and/or stereo lithography to effectively communicate design solutions.
