Drafting is a graphic language that is used to communicate ideas and plans from the creative design stage through production. Computer drafting and design is one way to produce drawings in design and drafting fields.
Many industries use drafters to translate the ideas, sketches and specifications of an engineer, architect or designer into working plans. These plans may detail how to make products, engineer projects or create structures.
The Computer Drafting and Design program in the School of Drafting and Design at ITT Technical Institute combines computer-aided drafting with conventional methods of graphic communication to solve drafting and basic design-related problems. The program balances classroom theory and hands-on applications in a laboratory environment. Students create a variety of drawings of various sizes on different drawing media using conventional and computer-aided drafting equipment. If you have strong drawing ability, visual aptitude and attention to detail, studying computer drafting and design may fit your skills and interests.
This program can help graduates develop knowledge and skills that they can use to pursue career opportunities in a variety of entry-level positions in various fields involving drafting and design. Drafting fields include, among others, mechanical drafting, piping drafting, architectural and construction drafting, civil drafting, interior design, illustration and design detailing.
