About the Program

It is often desirable for students of technology, fashion, urban planning, mechanical engineering, business, and so on to pursue a concentrated, but not all-encompassing, study of drafting techniques outside of their major field. With knowledge of manual and computer-aided drafting, along with model making and color rendering, students will have wider professional and academic opportunities available upon graduation. While students may learn computer-aided drafting through online tutorials informally, the formal recognition of a minor program increases job prospects for the students beyond their major area of study.
