Description: The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Industrial Design Technology prepares students for careers as technical assistants, engineering technicians or hands-on product manufacturers. This expertise will allow employment in a variety of hi-tech product development and manufacturing companies. The program includes courses designed to provide students with a working knowledge in the field of product design, product development and rapid part production. Competency and technical expertise will be learned on industry specific three-dimensional (3D) Solid Design software, Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software, 3D printers and Multi-Axis Computer Numerical Control (CNC) controlled machines. The core specialty of the program is hands-on experience with Computer Aided Design (CAD), CAM, CNC and 3D printing.
