Computer Aided Design and Drafting

Student Stories

Wondering what your career journey might look like with a CADD degree? Here’s how these LBCC students experienced it.


Nathan R. Sanders

"I am now working full-time at Pillar Consulting Engineering. I am living the dream: I have a house, a spouse, and a job with benefits. This would not have been possible without the drafting program and the time you and your staff poured into us students. I am surprised how similar my job is to the classes I took at LBCC. I feel prepared for whatever is to come."



Scott Neumann

"I wanted to say thank you for helping me find a job and being such a good instructor. I wouldn't be here without your help and Ric's as well. Thank you both. I am happy here at BHS; it's a good job with good people."



Scott Groff

"We are in a training session involving myself and six other employees. We have been working here for four months or more. We were given 3D isometric drawings with dimensions and had to make front, top, and right drawings of everything, just like you had us do in class. We then fully dimensioned and posted our final detailed drawings and peer-critiqued each other. Not only did the drawings stick out to my peers, but my boss was there as well as our trainer. It really helped make a good impression on my boss. It was also very evident that other schools did not teach ANSI standards, because everyone dimensioned differently. Also one of the guys literally said ‘Wow, I hope you pay him more than us.’ This, I think, was a testament to your teaching skills and the knowledge that you passed on. I really wanted to thank you for it."



Stephen Cavanaugh

"It is just a week into my job as a Civil Drafter in Cheyenne, and let me tell you that my ANSI influence is noticeable! I have been working with drawings from architectural engineers, and let's just say that they need a standard! I do want to say again, thank you for the last two years; I do appreciate it. You and Dave do a great job preparing students for reality."
