Associate of Applied Science in Computer Aided Drafting and Design

Shawnee State University is proud to offer an Associate of Applied Science in Computer Aided Drafting and Design. CADD is an integral part of today's design process. Pick a field and you will find CADD in one form or another. Job placement (most people's reason for attending an institution of higher learning) is very high! Today's CADD graduates enjoy a certain feeling of confidence and security knowing that in the design field, the odds of obtaining employment are actually on their side for a change! Students graduating from the program can expect occupations as, for example, CADD operators, draftspersons, engineering designers, detailers, and technical illustrators.

The CADD programs at SSU offers a number of ways for students to develop valuable design and manufacturing skills which are so desirable in today's job market.
