The Drafting Academy offers students the opportunity to learn and develop skills that emphasize the ability to visualize objects and then produce drawings of those objects in 2D and 3D views.
Through this process students will be working with various software packages (AutoCAD, AutoCAD Architect, Revit, and Inventor). The completion of this academy will allow students to gain dual credit through Northeast Community College in two drafting classes for a total of seven credit hours.
