Computer Aided Design & Manufacturing Certificate
Program Goals Statement
This certificate program provides students with the needed skills to become a professional computer-aided draftsperson, mechanical, or manufacturing technicians in the engineering industry. Students learn fundamental concepts of engineering drawing through advanced computer-aided design techniques and CAD/CAM. They will utilize and set up standard machine-shop equipment and operate and program CNC machinery. Students also understand the materials to be processed and technical drawing through the use of AutoCAD, SolidWorks, Inventor, and CamWorks.
- This program serves as a solid base for continuing on toward a degree with all courses transferring to BCC's Automation, Electro-Mechanical, and Mechanical Technology programs.
- Students utilize typical industrial CNC machining centers, high-tech computer equipment, and the latest AutoDesk, SolidWorks, and/or CAM software.
