Computer Aided Design and Engineering Technologies

Program Description
Redefine what is possible through CAD & Engineering Technologies! Students will use the latest industry standard software and equipment to produce working drawings, 3D solid model designs, parts and assemblies. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to program and operate CNC machines (router, lathe, mill and water jet) to produce manufactured products using wood, metal, and plastic. Students will also operate rapid prototype machines (3D printer) laser engraver in fabricating various engineered and designed products. Manufacturing and welding processes and industries will be explored. This exciting, professional Career-Technical Education offering is designed to prepare students for careers in the engineering, advanced manufacturing and architectural career fields. Students will network with industry experts and partners in high demand career fields. Senior level internships/industry placement opportunities are available to qualified students. Advanced technologies, coupled with the need to update and improve manufacturing facilities and product design, should fuel the demand for professionals in computer-aided manufacturing, architecture, and engineering technologies. According to the latest data 7,400 jobs within a 100 mile radius of Akron, Ohio currently exist. Upon successful completion of the program, students will be eligible to earn college credits (CTAG) to any Ohio public university for Computer-Aided Drafting and Design in an Engineering Technology program.
