The Design program offers courses in architecture, drafting, and engineering for students who wish to transfer to a four-year institution or gain employment in the fields of architectural design, computer aided design, mechanical design, and engineering design. The program also offers courses for those who may not be pursuing a career in design but who have an interest in or need to understand graphic communication.
The engineering course work includes engineering design graphics courses for students majoring in aerospace, civil, environmental, industrial, mechanical, and structural engineering.
The architectural course work gives students a working knowledge of the practices and technical aspects of architectural design and drawing.
Careers in architecture, some of which require an undergraduate degree, include urban planner, surveyor, draftsperson, building inspector, corporate architect, and technical illustrator.
Employers for students obtaining certificates and associate degrees include federal, state, and local land use planning agencies; building and transportation agencies; private architectural, contract, and construction companies; and for-profit industrial and manufacturing companies in life science, defense, sport/recreation equipment, and various other industries.
