Engineering Technology

Certificates of Competencies

The competency certificate programs in Manufacturing Applications are offered through Engineering Technology and can be earned by completing four course sequences.

The student has three options to choose from:

  • CAD Operator
  • CNC Operator
  • Quality Technician

CAD Operator

The program is structured to prepare individuals to perform Computer Aided Drafting and Design work in various industries. The trained individual will have the skills to prepare drawings for manufacture and make design amendments to existing drawings using CAD programs. The program will prepare the individual to work as a CAD operator, as well as a drafting technician and a detailer.
