The Computer-Aided Drafting (CAD) program prepares students to pursue a drafting career. Students in the CAD program work with 2-D CAD, Microsoft Office Suite, and commercial and residential blueprint reading. Students completing the BIM degree program will have a broad range of 2-D and 3-D CAD, drafting skills and a solid, well-rounded educational foundation. Skills obtained at NTU give students the opportunity to apply in various internships with NASA, NASA affiliates and gain employment in various industries such as architectural or engineering firms.
Students completing the BIM program will be given the opportunity to take the Autodesk Certified User exam to show competency in AutoCAD, Inventor (mechanical 3-D software) and Revit (Architectural 3-D software). Students completing the CAD program only have the opportunity to take the Autodesk Certified User exam show competency in AutoCAD.
