Computer Aided Design & Drafting Certificate

Program Description

Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) systems are used by drafters to prepare electronic drawings that can be viewed, printed, edited, or programmed directly into automated manufacturing systems. Although CADD is extensively used by drafters, they also need knowledge of traditional drafting techniques in order to fully understand and explain concepts. The Certificate in Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) program is designed to provide the knowledge and skills required for employment as an assistant draft crafts person. The Certificate in CADD is an area emphasized in the Architecture & Construction Career Cluster; one out of 16 career clusters selected in Guam’s Career & Technical Education Five-Year State Plan.

Program Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs):

Upon successful completion of the Certificate in Computer Aided Design & Drafting program, students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate knowledge and skills needed to design and draft projects ranging from two to three dimensional designs for commercial and residential buildings.
  2. Demonstrate basic skills needed to view, print, edit, and create variations of two and three dimensional electronic designs.
  3. Develop a professional work ethic needed in the architectural engineering industry.
