Computer Aided Drafting & Design (CAD)/Engineering
In this program, you will learn about both Computer Aided Drafting and Engineering; this involves hands-on activities like coding, 3D printing, robotics, and much more.
With this program you will:
- Learn how to work as a team and troubleshoot together
- Show your creativity through personal designs
- Gain college credits paid for by your school
- Get your senior math credit through the CAD program
- Get a small taste of everything you can do with a career involving CAD
- Experience careers as a video game designer, robotics technician, electrical engineer, 3D designer, animator, etc.
Computer Aided Drafting & Design
In CAD, you will work together with other classmates, or alone depending on the project, to draft and model your creations. With the abundance of tools and machinery, your creativity can come to life. Problem solving is huge for CAD students. As a student, you will learn how to troubleshoot a variety of problems, giving you real world experience in a friendly environment.
In Engineering, inside of the shop, you will build catapults, suspension bridges, electric cars, and a variety of other projects. You will learn how to research, fabricate, and test many projects for competitions. You will use advanced mathematics, chemistry, and physics to solve your complex engineering projects.
