AutoCAD, Certificate

Program Code: CRCAD_UCT

Program Description

The AutoCAD: Computer-Aided Drafting Certificate is an introduction to AutoCAD, the industry standard for high-quality engineering graphics. Knowing AutoCAD will open many doors for you in the workplace. In fact, more and more jobs require a working knowledge of AutoCAD, an industry standard for high-quality engineering graphics. Classes will be "hands on" in the computer lab during convenient evening hours. Students who take the classes in this certificate will:

  • Learn drawing vocabulary used on blueprints-apply that vocabulary to produce drawings
  • Understand sectional views
  • Create 2D drawings
  • Develop computer skills for drafting-learn commands, views, etc.
  • Create 3D models

What is AutoCAD?

Computer software to model, design, and analyze a wide variety of two and three dimensional objects.

Academic Advising

The objectives of the university’s academic advising program are to help advisees identify and achieve their academic goals, to promote their intellectual discovery, and to encourage students to take advantage of both in-and out-of class educational opportunities in order that they become self-directed learners and decision makers.

Both advisers and advisees share responsibility for making the advising relationship succeed. By encouraging their advisees to become engaged in their education, to meet their educational goals, and to develop the habit of learning, advisers assume a significant educational role. The advisee's unit of enrollment will provide each advisee with a primary academic adviser, the information needed to plan the chosen program of study, and referrals to other specialized resources.
