Computer Aided Design and Drafting

This two-year program is a technical curriculum designed to help you acquire basic skills and knowledge to successfully begin a career in one of many drafting-related occupations.

Classes are held in well-equipped classrooms and labs outfitted with multiple 3D rapid prototyping printers. Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) workstations are used in all courses, and current industry-standard versions of Autodesk series software and Solidworks are used in engineering graphics classes.

American Society of Certified Engineering Technicians (ASCET)

ASCET is the only national, professional society for engineering. It offers two memorial grants, the Joseph M. Parish and the Joseph C. Johnson, of $500 and $750 respectively. Small cash grants are also available. The club offers professional development opportunities, national and regional meetings, and a member magazine, CET, which often provides lists of hiring employers and members seeking employment.

To join ASCET or learn about scheduled events, contact any club officer or LBCC staff in the CADD department. The $8 membership fee can be waived, making ASCET free to join. Visit for more information.
