From cars, to toys, to appliances, engineers design the parts that make our daily lives easier, safer and more enjoyable. The manufacturing industry, which remains a major contributor to our U.S. economy, relies on engineers' technical skills and related specialty applications for a host of exciting and challenging careers. The SCCTC Engineering and Science Technologies program helps students gain the insight and the hands-on experience they need to move on to advanced education opportunities or to enter the workplace in a technical role.
If you enjoy drawing, visualization, and cutting edge technology, become a CAD Draftsman! After this two year class, you will be equipped with the skills and know-how to design your own ticket to a technical career in the drafting field or a college degree in engineering. Invent and engineer your own custom digital models from a desktop computer, and then generate physical 3-Dimensional objects with our three 3D printers. 3D printers use approximately 15 materials from solid multi-colored polymers to flexible see-through rubber materials. If you can imagine it, you can 3D print it.
Students develop skills by working with the latest drafting software on Full HD 1080p dual monitors to create projects. Learn precision with one-on-one instruction from a master draftsman, Mr. Barge, as well as from your 15 classmates. Small class size optimizes each student’s opportunity to reach their full potential. Feel your progress by literally holding your 3-D designed creations and take home your most prized pieces.
