Drafting and Design Technology

Drafting is a type of graphic communication. Engineers, architects and designers provide their ideas, sketches and specifications to drafters. The drafters use that information to produce working plans that detail how to make the product. Computer drafting and design is one method to produce drawings in traditional design and drafting fields. The availability of computer-aided drafting (CAD) systems has enabled even small drafting firms to utilize computers for drafting and design.

The Drafting and Design Technology program in the School of Drafting and Design at ITT Technical Institute exposes students to a variety of fundamental skills utilized in entry-level CAD and design positions. Students are introduced to CAD technologies and conventional drafting methods to produce various designs, working drawings, charts, forms and records, via classroom theory and laboratory projects.

If you have a strong drawing ability, visual aptitude, and attention to detail, studying drafting and design technology may fit your skills and interests.
