Potential students who are interested in pursuing a career as a drafter or designer may have an interest in attending an AutoCAD course. AutoCAD is a proprietary computer-aided drafting (CAD) software program from Autodesk, Inc. used to
make 2D and 3D designs and documentation. AutoCAD is one of the industry leading software packages available for computer-aided design.
An AutoCAD course may be a common component for programs of study involving drafting and design. Since designs and models are created for many industries, including architecture, construction and manufacturing, the ability to understand and utilize computer-aided drafting software programs can be beneficial when pursuing careers in drafting and design.
Some ITT Technical Institutes, leading providers of technology education in the United States, offer the Computer Drafting and Design program in the School of Drafting and Design.
