Description: The Certificate of Completion (CCL) in CAD Application program is designed to broaden students` design exposure and Computer Aided Design (CAD) technology skills. Students will utilize industry standard CAD and BIM software to produce three-dimensional (3D) drawings and parametric models. This will include presentation methods and construction documentation conventions for either the architecture or civil design fields. Students may apply these courses toward the Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree in Architectural and Civil CAD Technology (3503).
