Architectural and Engineering Computer Aided Design

ELECTRONIC GRAPHICS SPECIALIZATION

Associate of Applied Science Degree

ACCTech

This program is intended for students pursuing careers in the Electronic CAD Graphics Specialization.

Electrical CAD drafters prepare wiring and layout diagrams used by workers who install and repair electrical equipment and wiring in electrical distribution systems and buildings. Electronics CAD drafters draw wiring diagrams, circuit board assembly diagrams, schematics, and integrated circuit layout drawings used in the manufacture, installation, and repair of electronic devices and components.

Students who choose the Electronic Graphics Specialization career track are employed by organizations in the semiconductor and commercial electronics fields. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with the Architectural and Engineering Computer Aided Design faculty advisor before pursuing this degree program.
