Engineering & Architectural Design

Last Updated: 11/30/2020 8:17 PM

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 & Architectural Design 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 Engineer & Architectural Design student! 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.
