Engineering Design Technology, A.A.S.

Associate of Applied Science degree: Advanced Manufacturing

The Associate’s Degree of Advanced Manufacturing with a concentration in Design Drafting will prepare students to obtain an entry-level position in a high technology society. This degree is comprised of courses that emphasize design, industry standards (ANSI, AM, AIA, etc.), critical thinking, real-life applications and drafting for the architectural, engineering, and additive manufacturing fields. The Architectural Design Technology, Engineering Design Technology, and Additive Manufacturing Design Technology degree paths will augment students’ learning by coupling theory instruction and demonstration with hands-on application using current software. Software includes, but is not limited to, SOLIDWORKS, Revit, Insight, Materialise, Lumion, DesignX, Netfab, MS Projects and AutoCad. Students will obtain the skills needed to be successful in planning, developing, and producing final construction documents. Students will enhance their abilities by learning the soft skills necessary to help them obtain a position in the design technologies career market. Job opportunities for graduates: 3D Designer, Solid Modeler, Additive Technician, Cad Technician, Manufacturing Technician, Prototyping Technician, Production Technician, Reverse Engineering Technician, SolidWorks Designer, Architectural Designer, Engineering Designer, 3D Printer Specialists, 3D Prototyper, Rendering/Illustrator, Project Managers, Civil Engineering Technicians, Urban Planner Technicians, Electrical and Electronics Engineering Technicians, Mechanical Engineering Technicians, Surveying and Mapping Technician, and 3D Printer Sales.

Design Drafting students should take ADM 107, ADM 112 and DDT 111 in their first semester. 

* Prior to taking MTH 103, MTH 113 or MTH 115 is recommended. 

* To fulfill the Natural Science or Math Elective, Physical Science or a higher Math course is recommended. 

* SOLIDWORKS is used in the ADM 108, ADM 208 and DDT 244 classes for industry-driven application.
